Could Phillies make a trade this week?

Could the Phillies make a trade before the season begins?

Matt Gelb of the Inquirer and Philly.com writes that the Phils could pursue a trade involving one of its young pitchers, in order to free up space on the 40-man roster.

Those young pitchers? We’re talking anyone from Zach Eflin and Jake Thompson to Alec Asher and Adam Morgan; I’d bet the latter are more likely to be dealt.

Currently the Phils’ 40-man roster is full; if someone like Chris Coghlan or Daniel Nava makes the squad, the Phils will have to eliminate a player from the 40-man to make room. The most likely candidates for removal include Morgan and Asher, plus Tyler Goeddel and Luis Garcia.
