For the second consecutive week, you can read breaking news of Phillies’ minor league cuts here on Phillies Nation and PhoulBallz.com first.
Before we get to the cuts, the “Baby Aces” have all been assigned to farm teams for the 2012 season. Brody Colvin will begin the year at Class-A Clearwater, while Trevor May, Jonathan Pettibone, and Julio Rodriguez all go to double-A Reading.
Larry Greene Jr. and Roman Quinn, the top two picks for the Phillies in the ’11 draft, have not been assigned, meaning they could see time at extended Spring Training.
According to Matt Gelb of the Philadephia Inquirer, the team has signed Chin-lung Hu to a contract. He’ll provide some depth at triple-A as an infielder.
Unda (pictured, right), a 22-year-old infielder had been signed by the Phillies in 2008 and played as high as Class A Lakewood, where he went 0-for-8 in 3 games played last season. The Venezuelan native was a member of the Phils’ championship Gulf Coast League team in 2010.
Durham, 23, was drafted in the 29th round in 2011. The righty pitcher went 1-0 with a 3.62 ERA and 2 saves in 18 appearances for the Gulf Coast League Phillies last year.
