Phillies claim Edwin Moreno on waivers from Rangers 

The Phillies have claimed Edwin Moreno on waivers from the Rangers.

Moreno was added to the 40 man roster after the 2003 season, when he posted an impressive 3.29 ERA for AA Frisco, while splitting time between the rotation and the bullpen. The ERA, however, masked a strikeout rate and K/BB ratio that were nice, but not as dominating as a low-3 ERA would suggest.

Moreno was awful in Frisco last season, and was shut down with shoulder problems.

The big surprise, to me, is that he lasted this long on the 40 man roster...he's one of the players, along with Ruddy Yan, Ryan Wing, and Agustin Montero, that I thought should have been 40 man casualties before Ben Kozlowski, who was claimed off of waivers by Cincy earlier in the offseason.

For a team with a couple of open roster spots, Moreno isn't a bad gamble...maybe he can get his career back on track with the Phillies.

This leaves two open spots on the 40 man roster now...

Is Ryan Wing healthy right now?
