2010 Chachi #21 Antonio Bastardo

Antonio Bastardo was the lone lefty reliever in the Phillies' bullpen to open the season, due to J.C. Romero's lingering elbow issues. He was optioned back to Lehigh twice before finding himself on the DL with elbow issues of his own. There's no timetable for his return, but he did throw a bullpen session this past weekend in Pittsburgh. Bastardo is card #21 in the 2010 Chachi set.

Phillies debut: June 2, 2009
How acquired: Signed as an amateur free agent, February 17, 2005
Others wearing #58 in the 2000s: Lou Collier 2004, Eude Brito 2005-2006, J.D. Durbin 2007, Antonio Bastardo 2009
2009 Postseason: Bastardo was on the Phillies' roster throughout the Postseason, but he only pitched a third of an inning through all 3 series. He did not appear in the World Series.
Pictured: NLDS Game 2, October 8th - Bastardo faced 1 batter in the top of the 8th, striking out the Rockies' Jason Giambi.
