Phillies' prospect Savery relieved by bullpen success

Video: After Joe Savery's baseball journey hit a dead end as a starting pitcher, the Phillies' 2007 first-round pick went back to the drawing board. Savery started this season trying to slug his way to the major leagues as a designated hitter, but now seems to have found a home in the bullpen. Savery sat down with Philly.com to talk about his unusual, and sometimes frustrating, minor league career - just one day before he was promoted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday.
