Phillies' Odubel Herrera: Designated for assignment
Herrera missed most of the 2019 season while serving a suspension for violating the league's domestic violence policy. This transaction is likely related to that incident; while Herrera was quite poor (.222/.288/.341) when available last season, he's a career .276/.333/.423 hitter who is still owed $19.5 million by the club. The Phillies were happy to move on despite the financial commitment and will give his spot on the 40-man roster to Nick Martini, claimed off waivers from the Reds in a corresponding move.
