Phillies Leaning Toward Moises Alou

Jim Salisbury reports the Phillies are interested in outfielder Moises Alou, as they continue searching for a right-handed bench bat.

Alou, 42, is a great hitter for his career, with a .303 AVG, 332 HR and 1,287 RBI. But he’s perenially hurt, and hasn’t played a full season since 2004. Last season he only played 15 games for the Mets.

Word is Alou wants a significant amount of playing time, and might be looking more at deals from American League clubs who need some DH work. From the Phillies’ end, it’s not so much a risk since Alou would be used as a fifth outfielder and bench bat, but he’d be expensive for that role.
