Just came across this.
Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Phillies may try to deal Brad Lidge at the trade deadline to increase Ruben Amaro’s financial flexibility to add a corner outfielder.
One name the Phillies have their eye on is Hunter Pence. Pence is hitting .298 with 36 RBI this year and would be a great right-handed addition to the lineup.
As Rosenthal writes, Pence would be a good fit because he doesn’t have a huge salary and would be under the Phillies control for 2012 to replace Raul Ibanez.
