MLB Injury News:
Even after acquiring center fielder Ben Revere from the Minnesota
Twins, the Philadelphia Phillies are in the market for additional outfielders
and have considered free agents Cody Ross and Ichiro Suzuki, reports Jim Salisbury of CSN Philly.
The Phillies have long liked Ross and they have seriously
considered Suzuki, according to sources.
The Phillies checked one to-do off their list at the winter
meetings when they traded Vance Worley and Trevor May to the Twins for Revere.
While the team now has a center fielder in the fold, they are still said to be
looking for corner outfielders.
While there’s been a run on center fielders, several corner
outfield options remain, including Ross, Suzuki, Nick Swisher and Josh
Hamilton. The Phillies have been connected to all four players at some point
this offseason, but Salisbury notes the team has “long liked” Ross and “seriously
Suzuki could likely be had on a one-year deal, though there
have been rumblings that he may be waiting on an offer from the New York
Yankees. Ross, on the other hand, is reportedly seeking a three-year contract
in the $20 million range.

The Phillies passing on some “overpaid” big name free agents have traded for Ben Revere, sending Vance Worley and Trevor May to the Twins. The Phils who are in dire need of offense and power will get little of either in acquiring Revere. Last season with the Twins Revere hit .294 ,stole 40 bases, and drove in a paltry 32 runs in 553 at bats. What makes the 24-year-old Revere...
