So much for Cristian Guzman‘s comeback.

This morning the Indians released Guzman, who signed a minor-league deal last month after sitting out all of last season due to personal issues.

Guzman had been trying to win a bench spot, but the 34-year-old former All-Star shortstop has been sidelined by a hamstring injury and never impressed.

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer passes along word that the Phillies “might be interested” in the wake of seemingly every infielder in the entire organization getting hurt.

    I must be old but I remember when he was a promising young shortstop, Yankee fans remember he was the big name in the Chuck Knoblaugh trade.

    Somewhere, Rueben Amaro is scouring his Rolodex for Guzman’s cell number!
