OK, maybe he’s not 100 Miles Giles anymore — and maybe the nickname was always a bit of a stretch — but teams can find out for themselves on Friday. According to multiple reports, the first of which came from Jon Heyman of The New York Post, the former Phillies reliever will throw a bullpen for any interested clubs on Friday in Phoenix, Ariz.

Giles debuted with the Phillies in 2014, three years after being the club’s seventh-round draft pick, and spent two seasons in Philadelphia. He racked up 16 saves (15 of which came after Jonathan Papelbon’s unceremonious departure in 2015) and posted a stout 1.56 ERA in the back of the Phillies’ bullpen.
