PITCHING-THIN PHILS TRADE FOR RELIEVER VINNY NITTOLI!

By Peter Marx

The Phillies have acquired RHP Vinny Nittoli from the Blue Jays for C Karl Ellison.

Nittoli had intended to opt out of his minor league contract with the Jays, but they got this trade done first.

The 31-year-old right-hander has made only one career appearance in the majors, but he holds a strong 3.30 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 59/14 K/BB ratio in 46 1/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level.

He’s expected to officially join the Phillies when MLB rosters expand from 26 players to 28 players on Thursday.
