Phillies recalled RHP Phillippe Aumont from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Aumont has allowed four runs over 1 2/3 relief innings with the big club this season. The former top prospect still throws hard but control issues have kept him from reaching his potential.

Manship posted a 6.65 ERA over 20 relief appearances for the Phils. He shouldn't have trouble passing through waivers.
Phillies optioned C Cameron Rupp to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

However, the 22-year-old's bat has come alive in July, with a .295/.325/.577 batting line and 12 extra-base hits in 21 games.
