Herrmann (forearm) was activated from the disabled list at Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday, Tom Housenick of the Allentown Morning Call reports. Herrmann had been sidelined since spring training with a right forearm strain. He will work out of the bullpen at Lehigh Valley.
Herrmann had a MRI Tuesday which revealed a right flexor strain, the Phillies' official site reports. Herrmann has not pitched this spring because of the injury. He will likely have to open the year on the disabled list.
Hermann has yet to pitch this spring due to a right forearm issue, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Hermann, a non-roster invitee, recently restarted a throwing program after trying to throw through the pain earlier in camp. He will compete for a bullpen spot if he is able to get healthy soon.
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.
