Phillies Reliever Mike Stutes Joins Twitter

Jun 19, 2011, 11:48 PM EDT

Phillies reliever Mike Stutes has made a quick impression on Philadelphia fans, mostly by turning into a very reliable arm out of the pen in his first season in the bigs, but also for bringing some flare to the team along with his game. Stutes brought even more of his personality to the Internet this weekend by embracing Twitter at the behest of former minor league teammate Michael Schwimer. Stutes presence on Twitter seems to be a welcomed one, with the youngster taking more of a Logan Morrison-like approach to the social networking site as opposed to the official marketing releases-like approach of his teammate, Jimmy Rollins.

Stutes brought even more of his personality to the Internet this weekend by embracing Twitter at the behest of former minor league teammate Michael Schwimer. Stutes presence on Twitter seems to be a welcomed one, with the youngster taking more of a Logan Morrison-like approach to the social networking site as opposed to the official-PR-release-like approach of his teammate, Jimmy Rollins.

In fact, Morrison — the Florida Marlins legendary Twit — has already welcomed the Phillie to the site in a way only he could.

LoMo tweeted the following late Sunday evening, “Easy Philly fans, might be the new stud in Twittertown but he’s still just a fluffer in my porno…”

And Stutes responded in kind, “ I now see why your a legend on here.”

Tweet recognize tweet, as the kids say.

Stutes seems to understand the service quite well, and has been answering many fan questions, even asking fans whether he should cut his hair or not. I’m going to assume that was a rhetorical question.

It’s all fun and games for the Phillies young, popular reliever now, but how will he respond to criticism when he allows a few runs in a big situation?

Only time will tell.
