The Phillies are looking to try to make some moves to fortify the roster for another World Series run. They want another outfielder and are currently talking trade with the Rays about B.J. Upton. He won’t come cheap. If the price is too high for Upton, look for the Phillies to go after guys like Melky Cabrera, David DeJesus, Coco Crisp, Corey Patterson, Ryan Sweeney, Juan Rivera and Chris Denorfia. The Phillies could also use a utility infielder who can handle 3B. Adam Kennedy, Blake DeWitt, Aaron Miles, Jamey Carroll, Mike Aviles and Jeff Baker each fit the bill. A lefty reliever would be nice for the Phillies to add with Will Ohman and Craig Breslow at the top of their list. Jason Frasor, Michael Wuertz and Matt Lindstrom are some hard throwing righty relievers that are likely on the Phillies’ radar right now. The Phillies have never been shy at the trade deadline so look for something to go down before this Sunday’s trade deadline.
