Five days after the Philadelphia Phillies designated southpaw reliever Hoby Milner for assignment, the team has traded him to the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Phillies announced the move on Saturday night and receive cash considerations in return.
Milner, 27, pitched to a 2.01 ERA in 37 relief outings with Philadelphia last season. The sidearm left-hander appeared in just 10 games with the Phillies this season, producing a 7.71 ERA, allowing four runs in just 4 2/3 innings.
Milner was a seventh-round pick by the Phillies in 2012.
