Phillies release Durbin, recall Savery

The Phillies have taken a bold step to refashion their bullpen, releasing Chad Durbin on Friday afternoon.

Joe Savery will be recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to fill the roster spot.

The 35-year-old Durbin managed to pick up a win in relief on Tuesday in Boston, but departs the organization with a 9.00 ERA in 16 innings over 16 appearances this season. He went 11-7 over three previous years (2008-10) with the Phils.

Savery did not record a decision in his lone 2013 big-league appearance, a one-inning stint during a 5-0 loss to the Cardinals on April 20.
