Since the Adams signing, many Phillies fans have been waiting for that “other” move. The Phillies have been linked to the likes of Vernon Wells and Alfonso Soriano to fill in their other outfield spot and that power right handed hitter. Unfortunately, it does not appear that the Phillies are going to address the void before Spring Training begins on February 12th.
The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Phillies beat writer Matt Gelb caught up with Amaro.
“’We're likely going with what we've got,’ Ruben Amaro Jr. said…
The GM did not eliminate the possibility of a veteran addition for the outfield, but admitted within his current constraints (both monetary and player-wise), there is not much more than a marginal upgrade available. He categorized his current pursuit as ‘looking around for some low-risk, high-reward type of players.’”
