Have the events of yesterday settled in with you yet? No, neither have I. But it did change the Phillies roster… a lot, so let’s see who is in and who is out.
Hunter Pence was shipped off to San Francisco 367 days after he was brought to Philadelphia.
Nate Schierholtz was brought in that trade. He’s another 4th outfielder and should be serviceable. He is not an everyday player, but he will be right now. He likes playing at CBP though, so that should help some…
Shane Victorino was sent to Los Angeles. Which, incidentally, is the same team that left him unprotected in the Rule 5 Draft…Twice. The second time the Phillies liked him, but didn’t think he was ready for the Majors yet, so they offered him back. The Dodgers didn’t want him. The Phillies kept him and sent him to the minors. He was a great Rule 5 pick.
Domonic Brown is alive! I know. It’s kind of shocking. I’m not sure which position he is going to be playing, but I am excited to see him back. I truly believe in this kid, and no I don’t think I’m just fooling myself. He might not always be the best outfielder, but he should make it up at the plate. (And let’s be honest, he can’t be any worse than we had this year in left field.)
