Phillies release Tony Gwynn Jr.

The Philadelphia Phillies have released outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr.

Gwynn passed though waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment by the Phillies last week.

The 31-year-old Gwynn was hitting just .163/.281/.204 in 199 plate appearances for the Phillies and will likely have to settle for a minor league contract if he wants to continue playing this season.
