Where the Ex-Phillies Are - A.L. Central

2001 Fleer Tradition #225
I love that Bruce Chen is still kicking around the Majors more than ten years after I thought he was washed up.  Chen has put together a nice career (60-58 over 13 seasons) and in November he signed a two-year deal to remain with the Royals through 2013.

Here are the ex-Phillies with A.L. Central teams this spring:

Chicago White Sox
Hitting Coach Jeff Manto (1993), Bench Coach Mark Parent (1997-1998), Pitcher Gavin Floyd (2004-2006)

Cleveland Indians
Third Base Coach Steve Smith (coach 2007-2008), Catcher Lou Marson (2008), Pitcher Robinson Tejeda* (2005)

Detroit Tigers

Kansas City Royals
Pitcher Bruce Chen (2000-2001), Outfielder Greg Golson* (2008)

Minnesota Twins

*Non-Roster Invitee

Where the Ex-Phillies Are

So the Indians only have 1 (Marson) of the 4 players acquired for Cliff Lee still on their roster?

I'm only counting guys who actually played with the Phillies. So of the 4 guys traded, only Marson is (technically) an ex-Phil. Carlos Carrasco and Jason Donald are both on the Indians 40-man roster. Jason Knapp had season ending shoulder surgery last June and the hope is that he'll pitch again in 2012.
