Update: Mahay Trade ‘Not Close’

UPDATE (2:41 p.m.): Jayson Stark has now taken back his original report, saying the teams are not close to a deal. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports backs it up.


The Phillies are very close to trading infielder Jason Donald for left-handed pitcher Ron Mahay.

Mahay, 37, is 5-0 with a 1.81 ERA this season for the Royals. Donald, 23, was in AA Reading and ready to play for the U.S. olympic team in Beijing.

This would solidify the Phillies campaign to get a left-handed reliever. Lefty JA Happ, originally figured to be joining the Phillies after Adam Eaton’s demotion, is still in limbo.
