OPEN THREAD WITH UPDATES: 2017 Trade Deadline; Phillies send Benoit to Pittsburgh

UPDATE (4:55 p.m.): And the Phillies made a trade. They sent Joaquin Benoit and cash to the Pirates for right-handed pitcher Seth McGarry.

McGarry, 23, has a 1.34 ERA, 38 strikeouts and 14 walks in 31 relief appearances for high-A Bradenton.

Benoit has a 4.07 ERA with 43 strikeouts and 16 walks this season.

It’s trade deadline day!

Will Tommy Joseph be dealt? (He’s in today’s lineup.)

Will the Phils pull a surprise move?

The non-waiver trade deadline is 4 p.m. today, but expectations are low that the Phillies make any additional moves after the flurry of activity last week.

Still, we’ll be here presenting all the rumors and – in case anything happens – breaking news.
