The Philadelphia Phillies deal Joe Blanton to the Dodgers

The Phillies have dealt 31-year old righty starting pitcher Joe Blanton to the Los Angeles Dodgers for either a player to be named later or cash considerations. Blanton pitched in 21 games (20 starts) for the Phillies this year and he was 8-9 with a 4.59 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP. He pitched in 105 games (100 starts) in his first five years with the Phillies and he was 34-25 with a 4.47 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP. This was not a surprising move as the Phillies really tried to deal Blanton to the Orioles at the trade deadline, but they couldn’t agree on the compensation.
