Phillies | Market quiet for big names

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:42:00 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SPs Cliff Lee and A.J. Burnett, RP Jonathan Papelbon, and 1B Ryan Howard haven't attracted much serious interest in trade talks. Howard and Lee have almost no market, and Burnett and Papelbon's allure has been limited. The latter two have unattractive player options that are limiting interest. All four may be candidates for an August trade after the non-waiver deadline passes.

Fantasy Tip: Philly's efforts to blow things up aren't going so well, and fantasy players may have to wait a few more weeks for significant changes to happen.
