The Phillies have acquired starting pitcher Kyle Lohse from the Reds but they paid a huge price in lefty starter Matt Maloney. Maloney was the #9 prospect in the Phillies entire minor league system coming into this season according to Baseball America. He has started 21 games in AA ball this season and he was 9-7 with a 3.94 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. In 125.2 innings this season he has allowed 117 hits, walked 45 batters and whiffed 115. Still, the Phillies needed help in the rotation now…so this trade could wind up helping them some this season. Lohse started 21 games this season for the Reds and he was 6-12 with a 4.58 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP. In 131.2 innings this season he has allowed 143 hits, walked 33 batters and whiffed 80.
