BY foxsports • November 9, 2009

The Philadelphia Phillies have declined their $5.5 million 2010 option on third baseman Pedro Feliz. Feliz hit .266 with 12 home runs and 82 RBIs in 158 games for the National League champion Phillies this season. He'll receive a $500,000 buyout. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. says he won't rule out bringing back Feliz. Feliz had the winning hit for the Phillies in the 2008 World Series clincher against Tampa Bay.
