According to Mike Tingle of ESPN 840 in Charlottesville, Va., (hat tip MLBTR), the Rays are going to scout Jayson Werth, saying he may be available if the deal is right.
It was reported earlier in the season the Phils asked about reliever Dan Wheeler. It’s possible the Rays could make either lefty Trever Miller (5.13 ERA) or lefty JP Howell (2.54 ERA) available in a trade. But I’d assume the Phils would need to get win-now value in return for Werth. (Unless the Phils are serious about getting Manny Ramirez, spinning Werth for prospects and trading away those or their own.)
And as expected, Greg Maddux said no to a trade to the Phils.
