PHILLIES TRADE KEN GILES TO ASTROS FOR MULTIPLE PLAYERS
Velasquez was ranked by MLBPipeline.com as the 69th-best prospect in baseball and the fourth-best prospect in Houston's farm system. The 23-year-old made 19 appearances last year and started in seven of them, going 1-1 with a 4.37 ERA. He's a hard thrower and could be another good arm in the starting rotation for years to come. Oberholtzer went 2-2 last year with a 4.46 ERA and he might be a starter early in the season. Fisher, who attended Cedar Crest High School in Lebanon, PA, was ranked eighth in the Astros' system according to MLBPipeline.com. Possible replacements for Giles could be minor-league right-handers Edubray Ramos and Jimmy Cordero from inside the system.
We have to send our good byes to Giles properly...
The Phillies also signed David Hernandez to a one-year deal to bolster their bullpen. Phillies president Andy MacPhail and Klentak were with him when he made his big league debut with the Orioles in 2009.
