Report: Phillies have an agreement with Kyle Schwarber


The Phillies have finally made a big move.

The team has an agreement with former Cubs, Nationals and Red Sox outfielder Kyle Schwarber, according to Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia. Ken Rosenthal first mentioned that the Phillies and Schwarber were making progress.

Schwarber, 29, had his best season last year as a member of both the Nationals and Red Sox. He slashed .266/.374/.554 with 32 home runs and 71 RBIs in 2021. He thrived as an unconventional power leadoff hitter last season and it’s likely the Phillies will slot him in that spot considering how much the Phillies struggled to get production from the top of the order.

Update 10:00 a.m. ET: Jayson Stark has some details on the deal:

We’ll have more on this story as details become available.

    I much preferred the idea of Kris Bryant …more flexibility position-wise. LF, 3rd, DH, etc

    Like both players, but the bonus of Bryant is the Harper connection…keep your long term investments happy

    LOVE TO SEE THE PHILLIES GO OVER THE CAP
    TO SIGN BRYANT BUT THEY WONT DO THAT EVER!
    WHY? Because the Ownership likes PROFITS!
    MORE THAN BASEBALL. After all it’s a BUSINESS!

    LF WILL NOW BECOME ANOTHER TRY OUT
    MERRY GO ROUND POSITION FOR PROSPECTS
    WHO CAN PLAY DEFENSE AND HIT THE BALL.
    SAME AS CF, 3B, 1B, SS. WE NEED TO FIX
    THE SWISS CHEESE DEFENSE PROBLEM WE HAVE!
