Phillies Rumors: Philly Targeting Relievers, Outfielders

Now that the Philadelphia Phillies have acquired third baseman Michael Young from the Texas Rangers, their next targets will be a setup man and outfielders, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

So far this offseason the Phillies have added a center fielder, acquiring Ben Revere from the Minnesota Twins, and a third baseman in Young.

Even after Revere, Philadelphia has another void in their outfield. The club traded Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence last summer, leaving them with unproven options penciled in at this point, including Darin Ruf, John Mayberry Jr. and Domonic Brown. Philadelphia has been tied to basically every available outfielder this offseason, including Josh Hamilton, Cody Ross and Nick Swisher.

Beyond closer Jonathan Papelbon, Philadelphia has several questions when it comes to the back end of its bullpen. They’ve been in the market for late-inning arms and nearly acquired Wilton Lopez from the Houston Astros earlier this offseason.
