Good morning! Let’s dip into the news:
- With the offseason now here, we have rumors. Apparently J.D. Martinez and Howie Kendrick are rumored to be of interest to the Phils – the two outfielders would have to be acquired via trade.
We’ll have more on this soon. But not sure if Kendrick is a good fit for the Phils, as he’s basically what we hope Aaron Altherr can be. Martinez feels more likely.
- The New York Post is suggesting Jay Bruce could be a Phillie via trade.
That’s not terrible, but Bruce may cost the Phils more than they want. And to the Mets. Ehh.
- Again, get acquainted with our Offseason Overview to get a sense of what the Phils may be thinking. And we know what we’re saying – we already have two scores (Neshek, Hellickson’s qualifying offer).
