Ronald Torreyes: Let go by Phillies
Torreyes was released by the Phillies on Tuesday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Torreyes got into 112 games for the Phillies last season as a utility infielder but hit just .242/.286/.346. The signing of Johan Camargo has pushed him further down the organizational depth chart this season, and he evidently didn't see a path to playing time in Philadelphia even after the underperforming Bryson Stott was demoted Monday. He'll hit the open market in search of other opportunities but seems unlikely to play a major role wherever he lands.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Ronald Torreyes: Sent to minors
Torreyes was reassigned to minor-league camp Monday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Torreyes went 1-for-11 with a run, an RBI, a walk and two strikeouts this spring, and he was unable to land a spot on the Opening Day roster. He appeared in 112 games for the Phillies last year, so he'll presumably be in the mix to provide utility depth at some point in 2022.... See More ... See Less

Phillies' Ronald Torreyes: Losing playing time
Torreyes is not in the lineup Friday against the Mets.
The 29-year-old finds himself on the bench for the fourth time in the past five games, as Freddy Galvis appears to have taken over as Philadelphia's primary third baseman.

Phillies' Ronald Torreyes: Sits again Sunday
Torreyes will hit the bench for the second time in three games Sunday against the Rockies.
The Phillies have started to move away from Torreyes at third base, as his .245/.289/.350 slash line is nowhere near good enough for a corner infielder. Freddy Galvis will start at the hot corner Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Ronald Torreyes: Not in Friday's lineup
Torreyes will sit Friday against the Rockies.
Torreyes has been the Phillies' primary third baseman for the past month due to Alec Bohm's wrist injury and struggles, but he's a very poor fit offensively for the position and his 75 wRC+, the product of a .249/.293/.356 slash line, is clearly inadequate for a corner infielder. Torreyes owns a barely better 78 wRC+ over the course of his seven-year career, so there's little reason to expect things will improve for him at the plate any time soon. Freddy Galvis, who owns a career wRC+ of 80, will start at the hot corner Friday.... See More ... See Less

Torreyes has emerged as the Phillies' primary third baseman despite a poor .249/.293/.361 slash line, numbers which aren't good enough for an everyday middle infielder, let alone a third baseman. Freddy Galvis will take over at the hot corner Monday.... See More ... See Less

Phillies' Ronald Torreyes: Emerges as everyday player
Torreyes will start at third base and bat seventh Sunday against the Reds.
Alec Bohm will be on the bench Sunday for a fourth straight game, while Torreyes draws his eighth consecutive start, the last six of which have come at third base.

Torreyes is out of the lineup for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Nationals.
Torreyes had started in 13 of the Phillies' last 14 games, slashing an impressive .349/.420/.535 over that stretch. With all of Alec Bohm, Didi Gregorius and Jean Segura healthy again, Torreyes won't have a path to an everyday role, but expect the Phillies to find a way to give the versatile infielder at least a handful of starts per week while he's dialed in at the dish....
