- In Ken Rosenthal’s latest Full Count video (via MLBTradeRumors), the FOXSports insider says the Phillies are not an option for Blue Jays starter AJ Burnett.
Evidently the Phils are among the teams on Burnett’s no-trade clause, and the Phils have little interest in him.
- Staying with trade talk, the Phils are reportedly talking to the Rockies about reliever Brian Fuentes.
Sam Carchidi says the Rockies are asking for either Carlos Carrasco or Lou Marson, but as we know, the Phils won’t give them up. Currently reliever Tom Gordon is on the disabled list, and sent-up LOOGY RJ Swindle has a 7.71 ERA in three appearances.
- Phuture Phillies has a Futures Game discussion page going today.
Carlos Carrasco, Lou Marson, Greg Golson and Jason Donald are scheduled to play in the game today in the Bronx. The game is at 12:30 p.m. and will be broadcast live on ESPN2.
