Tommy Hunter Reports to Phillies Summer Camp
The Phillies bullpen has some interesting arms battling for spots during this unique 'summer camp'.
Today they got another name added into the mix, when veteran right-hander Tommy Hunter reported to Citizens bank Park.
Hunter, who missed most of last season, requiring surgery to repair the flexor tendon in his right arm, was placed on the COVID-19 injured list on July 2, retroactive to June 30.
The 33-year-old reliever gives the Phillies a veteran who could pitch in high-leverage situations and joins a bullpen that should include: Hector Neris, Jose Alvarez, Adam Morgan, Victor Arano and Ranger Suárez.
We will see who else ends up making the 30-man roster in the bullpen soon, as the Philies play three exhibition games and open the season on Friday against the Marlins.
