The biggest piece of news today came from a Tweet from CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman. Heyman noted that Phillies’ President Dave Montgomery, when asked of the club’s interest in Josh Hamilton, stated “I don’t think there’s a whole lot we’re not considering.” Is this lip service, a coy hint about Hamilton, or an indication of wholesale change? It likely falls somewhere between the first and second choices. The Mariners have now reportedly joined the Hunt for Hamilton, with their president stating that they are “looking” at the slugger. The Phillies, Orioles, Braves, Red Sox, and Mariners are believed to be the official suitors for Hamilton. Ken Rosenthal reported late last night that the Phillies are now kicking the tires on multi-positional players such as Marco Scutaro and Jeff Keppinger. Many of the Phillies Nation staff urged the Phillies to sign Keppinger last season for his ability to play second and third and has played every position on the field except for catcher. Keppinger, 32, has played an above average third base and outfield but has been below average defensively at first and second. The righty utility player had a fantastic offensive year in 2012, posting a .325/.367/.439 with 9 HRs in 418 PA for the Rays. Rosenthal also repeated the news that the Phillies remain interested in Kevin Youkilis.
