Plouffe was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

Plouffe was with the Phillies for three weeks but made just a single start. He was the 16th-inning walkoff hero against the Dodgers on July 24, but someone had to go in order to make room on the roster for deadline-day acquisition Aaron Loup. Plouffe's .242/.304/.410 career line and ability to play multiple positions could be enough for another team to claim him off waivers and use him as a bench piece.
