2009 Topps Chrome #239 Sergio Escalona

Pitcher Sergio Escalona was designated for assignment yesterday to make room for the re-signed J.C. Romero.  The lefty reliever spent the entire 2010 season toiling for the AA Reading Phillies.  Throughout the 2009 season, Escalona appeared in 14 games in relief for the Phils, as he was recalled from the minors on six different occasions.  His longest stint with team came when rosters expanded in September.

Escalona appeared in both the Bowman Chrome and Topps Chrome sets in 2009, along with the Finest set in 2010.  Most importantly, Escalona was card #35 in the 2009 Chachi set.
