Phillies Can’t Bank On Trading Veterans When Time Comes

Compared to recent offseasons, the Phillies have been far more active this time around. They have made several trades and signings in hopes to better the team while also maintaining their long-term financial freedom.

So far, the team has traded for second baseman/left fielder Howie Kendrick, starting pitcher Clay Buchholz, and relief pitcher Pat Neshek. In addition, the team signed reliever Joaquin Benoit and starter Jeremy Hellickson accepted their qualifying offer. The Phils aren’t done making moves yet either as they are still searching for a left-handed bat.
