PHILADELPHIA - The Philadelphia Phillies announced on Monday that Hall of Famer Bruce Sutter has joined the organization as a minor league pitching consultant.

"Over the next several weeks, Bruce is going to help us evaluate our pitching staffs at Lehigh Valley and Reading," said assistant general manager of player development and scouting Chuck LaMar. "Having someone with his expertise who can help us with our prospects is outstanding."

Sutter, who is expected to work with the Phillies until the end of the regular minor league season, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006.

The former pitcher had a 68-71 record to go with 300 saves and a 2.83 earned run average over 661 relief appearances, spanning a 12-year career with the Chicago Cubs, St. Louis and Atlanta. Sutter led the National League in saves five times and was honored with the 1979 Cy Young Award. He was also a member of the 1982 Cardinals World Series title team.
