Yesterday night, we learned the Phils are out on Hamilton and in on Uehara. Photo: AP Catching up on some rumors that went under the radar last night, the Phillies are reported no longer interested in Josh Hamilton and have begun to think about a contract extension for Roy Halladay, per Jayson Stark. Stark quotes General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr., saying he “(hasn’t) been given a real budget. I know it’s not unlimited, but that’s not usually how we work.” This was interesting – does this mean that talks with B.J. Upton have progressed to a comfort point or simply that Hamilton is asking for too much? Per Ken Rosenthal, the Phillies have checked in on righty reliever Koji Uehara. Uehara, 37, had a 1.75 ERA in 37 appearances for the Rangers last season and a career 2.89 ERA in the Majors. Uehara turns 38 in April and will likely want more than one year. No reports on how much money or time he is seeking. Our Corey Seidman was willing to give him two years, $12 million in his Off Season Plan. Finally, two former Phils’ minor leaguers signed yesterday. Hector Luna was picked up by the Chunici Dragons and Dewayne Wise, who spent 2010 with Lehigh Valley, signed a one-year, $700K deal to return to the White Sox.
