- The Phillies traded catcher Jason Jaramillo to the Pirates for catcher Ronny Paulino.
- Rumors have the Phils close to signing free agent pitcher Chan Ho Park.
- In other pitching news, Derek Lowe remains on the table. Ruben Amaro confirmed that. The Yankees seemed to be close to signing him, but that curtailed last night as they offered a huge contract to AJ Burnett.
- Jake Peavy trade update: Conflicting reports had the deal dead, or well alive. We’ll side with the latter since Amaro confirmed this too — there may be movement today, and Mark DeRosa seems solidly in the picture.
Today is the Rule V draft, the annual end to the meetings.
