One of the players in the deal that sent Hunter Pence to the San Francisco Giants is being sent packing.

With the non-tender deadline approaching, the Phillies have informed outfielder Nate Schierholtz that they will not be offering him a contract for the 2013 season and he will become a free agent.

Schierholtz was acquired with prospects Tommy Joseph and Seth Rosin for Hunter Pence at the trade deadline in July. In 37 games with the Phillies, Schierholtz hit .273 with one home run and five RBIs.

At best, Schierholtz would have likely served as the fourth outfielder and leading bench bat for the Phillies next season. However, with a real lack of a role for Schierholtz, the Phillies are making a somewhat unsurprising move.
