Quick update here:

The Phillies have made a few moves involving their 40-man roster.

The headliner is probably Greg Dobbs becoming a free agent. The Phillies had the option of offering him arbitration, but instead removed him from the 40-man roster, at which point the veteran infielder elected to become a free agent.

Jamie Moyer also elected free agency, although that was more of a procedural move, with the Phillies clearing his spot on the 40-man roster. Moyer's contract expired at the end of the season. Five days after the World Series, he will be free to sign with any team.

The Phillies also outrighted catcher Paul Hoover to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Hoover then elected free agency.

They now have 38 players on the 40-man roster.
