PHILADELPHIA -- Nobody is talking about Phillies right-hander Michael Schwimer these days.
The Phillies optioned Schwimer to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, and CSNPhilly.com reported Schwimer got upset at the decision because he believed he should have been placed on the 15-day disabled list. Schwimer reportedly had complained of an arm injury recently, although he pitched as recently as Sunday and had not told the Phillies he could not pitch.
The club and Schwimer's agent declined comment Friday. It is unclear if Schwimer has filed a grievance with the players union.
