The Philadelphia Phillies have been “shocked by the prices”
of free agent outfielders this offseason, so they could turn to trade to fill
their void, specifically Vernon Wells of the Los Angeles Angels, reports Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.
The Phillies have been shocked by the prices for outfielders like Ross, so they could opt for a trade. Wells’ name has popped up, and the Angels would have to eat the majority of the $42 million remaining on his deal. But LA is very motivated to deal the 34-year-old, who needs to be motivated somewhere else.
