2016 Spring Training Roster - Where They Went

2016 Chachi Almost #3
2016 Chachi Almost #4
This is the fifth year in a row I've run a post to cap spring training and summarize where all the players in camp ended up.  This was an unusual year for the Phillies in that only one of the 66 players (67 if you count the late addition of Will Venable) ended up leaving the organization*.  Additionally impressive is that 23 of the 25 players on the IronPigs opening day roster were in camp with the big club, and we'll be seeing quite a few of these players this season in Philadelphia.

25 players made the club, and here's a look at where the other 42 players will start the season.

*As we were going to press last night, the Phillies traded Chris Leroux to the Toronto Blue Jays for cash considerations.

Disabled List (5):  Aaron Altherr, Cody Asche, Matt Harrison, Mario Hollands and Michael Mariot.

Released (1):  Greg Burke

The veteran Burke has apparently been released by the Phillies, although there hasn't been an official announcement yet.  Per a recent Twitter post, Burke seems to be calling it career.  He appeared in 48 games with the Padres in 2009 and 32 games with the Mets in 2013.  In three games this spring, Burke allowed four earned runs in 3 2/3 innings pitched.

Traded (1):  Chris Leroux

AAA - Lehigh Valley IronPigs (23):  Mark Appel, Elvis Araujo, J.P. Arencibia, Andrew Bailey, David Buchanan, Zach Eflin, Taylor Featherston, Ernesto Frieri, Luis Garcia, Ryan Jackson, Tommy Joseph, Andrew Knapp, Bobby LaFromboise, David Lough, Adam Morgan, Edward Mujica, Colton Murray, Angelys Nina, Brock Stassi, Darnell Sweeney, Jake Thompson, Will Venable, Nick Williams

AA - Reading Fightin Phils (8):  Jorge Alfaro, Alec Asher, J.P. Crawford, Severino Gonzalez, Logan Moore, Roman Quinn, Edubray Ramos, Reinier Roibal

Extended spring training in Clearwater (4):  Jimmy Cordero, Frank Herrmann, Gregory Infante and Yoervis Medina.
