Phillies Release Zambrano

|

Right-hander Carlos Zambrano was given his unconditional release, Senior Vice President and General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. announced today.

"Carlos was showing a pretty solid progression before his shoulder strain," said Amaro. "Unfortunately, at this point we feel that his chances of rehabbing and then pitching competitively for us in Philadelphia are remote. We felt that for Carlos and the Phillies this was the right thing to do at this time."  

Zambrano went 3-0 with a 2.04 ERA in seven starts in the Phillies minor league system this season.
