South Korean right-handed pitcher Noah Song,카지노 26, who joined the Philadelphia Phillies in the Rule 5 Draft, has been removed from the organization’s plans for the season.
The Phillies announced today that they have reinstated Song from the 60-day disabled list and designated him for assignment prior to today’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Song, who was placed on the disabled list with a back strain at the start of the season, has been making minor league rehab appearances since June 29.

A minor league rehab assignment cannot last more than 30 days for a pitcher. After 30 days, a decision must be made. This is to prevent “maneuvering” by placing players on the disabled list and keeping them in the minors when they are not injured.
And the Phillies chose not to part with him.
He has a unique resume. A fourth-round pick of the Boston Red Sox in the 2019 draft out of the Naval Academy, he pitched seven games at Single-A before enlisting in the Navy.
In 2020, a new rule was put in place that allowed midshipmen to play professional sports, but he enrolled in the Naval Flight School after confirming that it did not apply to him.
After fulfilling his active duty obligation, he was selected by Philadelphia in the Rule 5 draft last December. Since his discharge, he has been playing professionally again.
His performance with his new team was disappointing. He made eight appearances in Single-A, Double-A, and Triple-A as a rehab assignment, but failed to impress, allowing nine runs (7.36 ERA) in 11 innings with one home run, 11 walks, and 16 strikeouts.
Song was claimed off waivers at the same time he was designated for assignment. He can move teams via trade or waiver claim. If he clears waivers in full, he must return to his original team, the Boston Red Sox, per Rule 5 draft rules.
