The Philadelphia Inquirer's Matt Gelb reports the Phillies have unconditionally released outfielder Bobby Abreu, who is expected to sign with another team. This all comes one day after Abreu was told he would not be on the Opening Day roster and two days after the team agreed to push back his opt out date from today to Sunday.
Abreu signed a minor league deal with the Phillies back in January.
The 40-year-old was 10-for-38 batting .263/.429/.395 this spring with two RBIs, five runs and 10 walks this spring with the Phillies.
