Phillies Rumors: Philly Continues to Target Outfielders

Philadelphia Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. continues to target a veteran corner outfielder, according to Todd Zolecki of

"We've had several talks with free agents, although they're limited now," Amaro said Friday. "We've also talked about some possible trades. We're staying active as far as that is concerned. We're still trying to improve, depth-wise, in our outfield, if we can. We don't have proven everyday Major League players on our corners right now. If we can create some depth there, if we can create some competition, I would like to do that."

If the Phillies are unable to acquire an outfielder this winter, they will enter the spring with Domonic Brown, John Mayberry Jr., Darin Ruf and Laynce Nix on the corners, with Ben Revere in center field, according to Zolecki.
