Phillies trade rumor: Team linked to Orioles reliever Mychal Givens

Saturday’s late-game collapse against the Nationals was just another example of the struggles the Phillies bullpen has experienced this season. It ranks among the worst in the entire league with little hope of getting much better without some outside acquisitions.

The league-worst Orioles may be able to offer some help as they look to trade anything not bolted down to the floor at Camden Yards. They already traded Andrew Cashner to the Red Sox and are by no means done.

Roch Kubatko of MASN reported Monday that Philadelphia is interested Orioles reliever Mychal Givens, who is “most definitely in play” per Kubatko.
