Phillies | Marlon Byrd could approve deal

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 19:18:02 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Marlon Byrd had four teams on his no-trade list, the Kansas City Royals, Seattle Mariners, Tampa Bay Rays and Toronto Blue Jays. He said the Jays and Rays are on his no-trade list because they play their home games on artificial turf. However, he hinted Monday, July 28, he could lean toward approving a trade to the other teams. "Then I have to have a conversation with my wife and with my agents, and see what's best for me, my family, and what's best for this organization, because I can't be that selfish," Byrd said. "I was blessed. (General manager Ruben Amaro Jr.) came hard and wanted me here this year. He made it easy for me this offseason. So I can't be tough on him."

Phillies | Willing to take some of Cole Hamels' salary

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 19:17:14 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Philadelphia Phillies are listening to offers for SP Cole Hamels, but the price is astronomical. He has four years left on his contract after this season, at $22.5 million per year. The Phillies have told teams they're willing to take on $10 million of that. Despite that, one American League executive said Monday, July 28, that the asking price is "just not realistic."

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.

Phillies | Cole Hamels' price: 'the world'

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:37:27 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels is technically available on the trade market, but "they want the world" in exchange for him, according to a rival general manager. Hamels has a 20-team no-trade list but might be open to a trade because of Philadelphia's recent performance on the field.

Fantasy Tip: Hardly a surprise, considering he's a much better long-term ace than Cliff Lee, who has a better chance of being dealt, even after the non-waiver deadline. It'd take a ridiculous offer for Hamels to be moved.

Phillies | Interest in Marlon Byrd, Antonio Bastardo

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 13:52:38 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Marlon Byrd and RP Antonio Bastardo are the subject of the club's conversations with a few teams.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd is the more pertinent fantasy option in this case and could suffer or improve depending on any change in location. Still, the power growth he experienced last year has successfully continued in 2014, so the "fluke" card isn't a lock. He could be an expensive FAAB crossover piece if he goes to the American League.

Phillies | Jonathan Papelbon wants to be a closer if traded

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 12:39:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jonathan Papelbon has told the team he will not waive his no-trade clause if he does not become the closer of his new team. Papelbon is not interested in being a setup man or being in a closer-by-committee situation.

Phillies | To work out Rusney Castillo

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 10:58:10 -0700

Cuban OF Rusney Castillo will hold a private workout with the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday, July 29, according to a source. Castillo profiles as a center fielder. He held a showcase in Miami for several teams over the weekend, and there were reportedly representatives from 28 teams on hand. The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees are expected to put in high bids for Castillo, and he's expected to sign before the end of the season.

Phillies | Want several prospects in exchange for Cole Hamels

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 10:19:39 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Philadelphia Phillies are reportedly looking for four or five prospects in exchange for SP Cole Hamels. Last week, Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe wrote that the Phillies wanted three top prospects in return but a team official said that number was too conservative. It appears unlikely that any team is willing to meet that demand.

Phillies | Jonathan Papelbon may be difficult to move

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 10:12:28 -0700

The Philadelphia Phillies may find it difficult to move CL Jonathan Papelbon because of a vesting option for the 2016 season which kicks in if he finishes 100 combined games in 2014 and 2015 or if he finishes 55 games during the 2015 season. Papelbon is owed $13 million next year.

Phillies | Willing to eat some of Jonathan Papelbon's contract

Sat, 26 Jul 2014 10:33:43 -0700

The Philadelphia Phillies are telling teams that might be interested in trading for CL Jonathan Papelbon that they would absorb a portion of the $18 million remaining on his contract. However, there appears to be little interest.

Phillies | Ryan Howard benched again

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 20:36:35 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard was on the bench for a third consecutive day Friday, July 25, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. His replacement, 1B/OF Darin Ruf, went 1-for-2 with a double, walk, run scored and RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Philly was facing another left-handed starter, and Howard is hitting just .209 (19-for-91) with 40 strikeouts and a .275 on-base percentage vs. LHP. If he sits Saturday against Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter, a righty, then fantasy owners should really be concerned.
