The Philadelphia Phillies outrighted infielder Hector Luna off their forty-man roster today and the 32-year-old elected to become a free agent, reports Todd Zolecki of MLB.com:

Luna spent several stints with the Phillies this season. He was on the club’s major league roster less than two weeks ago before being optioned to Triple-A when Philadelphia activated Placido Polanco from the disabled list.

Over sixty-two at-bats for the Phillies, Luna hit .226/.273/.355 with two doubles and two home runs. During his time with Philadelphia, he manned first and third base as well as left field.

Luna has spent a majority of the season playing for Philadelphia’s Triple-A affiliate. Over 220 at-bats, he hit .282/.329/.450 with twelve doubles and seven home runs.

Over seven seasons at the major league level, Luna owns a career line of .262/.314/.385.
