The Phillies had to cut ties with a familiar face on Friday, but still tendered contracts to three potential key components to the team next season.

The Phillies faced four decisions on Friday. Two relatively easy, and two not as much so. The decisions were whether or not to tender contracts to the following: Freddy Galvis, Jeanmar Gomez, Cesar Hernandez, and Cody Asche.

Asche, who has been with the club since 2013, was released on Friday – following him being designated for assignment. He’ll be free to test the open market, and is a safe bet for a minor league deal with another club.

The team claimed LHP Dave Rollins from the Rangers in a separate deal, assuming Asche’s 40-man roster spot.

Rollins, who will now be on his fourth team in two weeks, gives the Phillies a chance to take another flyer on a lefty reliever while remaining 40-man flexibility.

Now for the others:
