Mayberry optioned in Victorino’s return

Shane Victorino is back with the Phillies and will bat sixth in today’s line up. But to make room for him, someone had to go.

The options: Michael Martinez offered back to his former team as a Rule 5 player; Ben Francisco optioned for assignment; Ross Gload put on the DL.

What the Phillies did: Send John Mayberry, Jr. back down to AAA Lehigh Valley. Are you kidding me?

Mayberry went from starter to minor leaguer in a matter of 48 hours. Is Martinez really that important to this team? Francisco isn’t even a thought anymore. And Ross Gload… the guy is hurt and can’t hit or run!

I just don’t know. Whatever. Welcome back, Victorino.
