Found November 29, 2011 on Phuture Phillies:
I thought this was an interesting little nugget included in Bob Elliot’s (Toronto Sun) column. The Phillies have discussed possible ways on how to re-acquire catcher Travis D’Araund from the Jays. Good luck. D’Arnaud is arguably the best prospect we’ve traded in the last 3 seasons. He appears to have star potential behind the plate if he can remain healthy. He was excellent in AA and is close to big league ready. The Jays have another good young catcher already in the majors in JP Arencibia, so they would be dealing from a position of strength, and they’d obviously ask for a ton in return. I’m sure nothing would happen on this, but its fun to ponder during the long cold winter.
