Sizemore, acquired last June after the Red Sox released him, will finish his Phillies career with a .250/.304/.354 line. He essentially lost his roster spot to now-outfielder Cody Asche, who returned last weekend.
Sizemore had a .701 OPS with the Phillies in 162 at-bats last season, leading GM Ruben Amaro, Jr. to sign him to a one-year, $2 million deal shortly after the 2014 campaign ended.
For as much credit as Amaro may deserve for these short-term contracts (see Harang, Aaron and Hernandez, Roberto) the Sizemore contract was questionable from the start.
Sizemore was designated for assignment Friday, and released Monday night.
