BREAKING: Howie Kendrick traded to Washington

The Phillies have traded outfielder Howie Kendrick to the Washington Nationals for left-handed pitcher Mackenzie Mills and international draft pool money. The Phillies also sent cash to Washington in the deal.

Kendrick has been often injured this season, but when healthy he’s been valuable, hitting .340/.397/.454 in 141 at bats.

Mills, a 6’4″, 205-pound left-handed starter, is 12-2 with a 3.01 ERA, 118 strikeouts and 22 walks in the class-A South Atlantic League.

    A trade to just make a trade. Don’t hate but the phillies didn’t exactly get anything that will help them in the next 2-3 years.

    Would like to see them trade Hernandez of someone who will bring a real return for next year.

    Just remember these trades in the future when the Phils try to tell you that they’re signing an over-the-hill veteran for the purpose of flipping him for prospects later. These are the caliber of prospects you can expect. In the end, the Hellickson and Kendrick signings didn’t amount to anything in the “flipped” market. Perhaps some of the extra pool money might help. Probably won’t. Also need to take into account the signings of Morton, Buchholz and Saunders, who didn’t even land the Phillies warm bodies of any caliber in return.

    Rather than sign old guys in the off-season and hoping that they’ll magically be flipped for top prospects by the end of July, the Phils need to spend their off-season acquiring legitimate players who are on the upside rather than the downside. Other teams do it every year. The Phillies operate in their own universe, however.
