For the millionth time, Horst had already been DFA'd, and eligible for free agency. Every team could have had him for nothing. He wasn't considered an asset. He was a throw away AAA piece for the Phillies when they decided they needed some depth late in spring training.
His likely future is middle relief dreck. I just don't see the love affair with the guy (albeit, he has surprised probably everyone in baseball with the year he has had).
