The Phillies signed Herrmann to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training, CSN Philadelphia reports. Herrmann pitched in the Angels' and Pirates' organizations last season where he had a 3.76 ERA in 52.2 innings with a 53:10 K:BB ratio. He will likely open next season at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
The Angels have optioned pitchers Daniel Reynolds and Jeremy McBryde to Triple-A Salt Lake. Reynolds tossed two scoreless innings in three appearances this spring, striking out three and walking two. McBryde allowed six runs (four earned) on eight hits in 3 2/3 innings across four appearances. The team has also re-assigned pitcher Frank Herrmann to minor-league camp.
The Angels announced they've invited reliever Frank Herrmann to spring training as a non-roster invitee. Herrmann, 30, spent the previous five years in the Indians' organization, last pitching in the majors in 2012.
Indians reliever Frank Herrmann has cleared waivers, and will head to Triple-A Columbus, according to WTAM. The 29-year-old Herrmann is currently the longest-tenured player within the organization. He signed with the club as an amateur free-agent in 2005.
The Indians announced several roster moves Sunday as they finalize their opening day roster. The Indians purchased the contracts of reliever Scott Atchison, DH Jason Giambi and outfielder Nyjer Morgan. They also placed Michael Bourn (left hamstring strain) and Giambi (rib fracture) on the 15-day disabed list. Pitchers Frank Herrmann and Colt Hynes were designated for assignment. Outfielder Matt Carson and infielder Ryan Rohlinger were reassigned to minor-league camp.
