According to our Pat Gallen via Twitter, the Phillies have parted ways with RHP Carlos Zambrano. Zambrano threw just 35.1 IP for the Phillies in their minor league ranks before heading to the sidelines on June 28 with shoulder pain. Zambrano threw 19 innings for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, where he struck out 18 but also walked 10. The move likely indicates that the Phillies did not believe Zambrano would rehab quick enough to contribute at the Major League level in 2013.

    I forgot we had him, to be totally honest.
