Phillies signed RHP Frank Herrmann to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Herrmann last pitched in the majors in 2012, when he put up a 2.33 ERA and 14/4 K/BB ratio over 19 1/3 innings with the Indians. While he's disappeared from the show, he put up nice numbers in the minors splitting time between the Pirates and Angels Triple-A systems in 2015. The 31-year-old right-hander held a 3.76 ERA and 53/10 K/BB ratio across 52 2/3 innings.

Angels reassigned RHP Frank Herrmann to minor league camp.

Herrmann got an invitation to major league camp when he signed a minor league deal with the Angels in late January, but the 30-year-old never really had a shot at an Opening Day roster spot. He posted a 6.37 ERA in 28 appearances last season for the Indians' Triple-A team.

Herrmann returned from Tommy John surgery last season and posted an ugly 6.37 ERA over 28 appearances with the Indians' Triple-A affiliate prior to being released in August. The 30-year-old is likely to serve as minor league bullpen depth.

Indians optioned RHPs Frank Herrmann, Preston Guilmet and Colt Hynes and INF David Adams to Triple-A Columbus.

Herrmann had Tommy John surgery in March 2013 and missed last season. The 29-year-old right-hander owns a 4.26 ERA and 1.33 WHIP over 120 1/3 career major league innings. Guilmet compiled a 1.68 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 72/14 K/BB ratio in 64 1/3 frames at the Triple-A level in 2013 and should be one of manager Terry Francona's first choices if Cleveland needs bullpen reinforcements. Hynes was acquired from the Padres for cash on Halloween day after allowing 17 runs in 17 innings last season with San Diego. The 26-year-old Adams was non-tendered by the Yankees over the winter and quickly latched on with the Indians. The injury-prone utility man hit only .193/.252/.286 across 43 games with the Yankees last season. All four will likely have their shot at the big league roster at some point in 2014.
