Michael Schwimer

By Scott Barancik/Jewish Baseball News

The Philadelphia Phillies recalled prospect Michael Schwimer from the minors today (4/25/2012) and wasted no time putting him to work.

The 26-year-old pitcher came on in relief of starter Cole Hamels, who carried the Phils to a 7-2 lead over the Arizona Diamondbacks through eight innings. Schwimer pitched a perfect ninth, retiring all three batters he faced with a total of 12 fastballs, sliders, and changeups.

It was an unexpectedly early call-up for the 6’8″ Virginia native, who replaced injured RHP Michael Stutes on the roster. Although Schwimer performed adequately last September in his Major-league debut and had a 1.04 ERA through 7 games this season for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, Philadelphia’s excellent pitching staff is one of baseball’s toughest to crack.

Schwimer is the ninth Jewish player to play in the Majors so far this season.
