Jeff Schuler of the Allentown Morning Call is reporting that several Iron Pigs will be September call ups for the big league club.
"@jschulermc: Not sure if list is complete but call-ups include Rupp, Robles, Savery, Cloyd, Galvis, Garcia. Aumont no, Valdes no #Phillies #IronPIgs"
The Phillies appear to be sending Phillippe Aumont a message. Once a promising bullpen piece who opened the season with the big league club, Aumont fell out of favor with the team, amidst reports that he and the coaching staff are not on the same page.
The move also seems to indicate that Raul Valdes is not in the Phillies' plans. Valdes could be cut to make roster room for the above players. Rupp will need a 40-man roster spot.
The Phillies could promote someone from Class AA Reading, but that remains to be seen.
