The Philadelphia Phillies have dealt Michael Young to the Dodgers

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Trades by joelapinski on Sunday 1 September 2013 at 7:08 am

The Phillies have dealt 36-year old righty swinging 3B/1B Michael Young to the Los Angeles Dodgers for 24-year old lefty starting pitcher Rob Rasmussen.  Young played in 126 games for the Phillies this year and he was 129 of 468 (.276 avg, .731 OPS) with 49 runs scored, 8 homers, 42 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Rasmussen came into this season as the Astros’ #19 prospect according to Baseball America.  He pitched in 28 games (24 starts) in AA+AAA-ball for the Dodgers this year and he was 3-11 with a 4.11 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  Rasmussen has now pitched in 88 games (77 starts) in his first four years in the minors and he is 23-32 with a 3.95 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP.  It was a good move for the Phillies to deal Young to the Dodgers for Rasmussen, who is a legit major league prospect.

The Philadelphia Phillies deal John McDonald to the Red Sox

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Trades by joelapinski on Saturday 31 August 2013 at 7:30 pm

The Phillies have dealt 38-year old righty swinging infielder John McDonald to the Boston Red Sox for 24-year old righty reliever Nefi Ogando.  McDonald played in 21 games for the Phillies this year and he was 4 for 23 (.174 avg, .513 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 1 homer and 3 RBIs.  Ogando pitched in 33 games (0 starts) in A-ball for the Red Sox and he was 2-3 with 3 saves, a 4.09 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP.  Ogando has now pitched in 97 games (6 starts) in his first four years in the minors and he is 10-13 with 5 saves, a 3.45 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP.  This was a good deal for the Phillies as they got a nice relief prospect for a 38-year old backup infielder that can’t hit a lick.

The Philadelphia Phillies have acquired John McDonald from the Indians

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Trades by joelapinski on Thursday 27 June 2013 at 1:43 pm

The Phillies have acquired 38-year old righty swinging infielder John McDonald from the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named later or cash considerations.  McDonald has played in 24 games this year with the Pirates and Indians and he is 2 for 38 (.053 avg, .242 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 0 homers and 1 RBI.  McDonald has now played in 978 games in his first 15 years in the majors and he is 549 of 2,327 (.236 avg, .601 OPS) with 266 runs scored, 27 homers, 202 RBIs and 33 stolen bases.  McDonald is a wizard with the glove, so look for him to do most of his work with Philly as a defensive replacement.

The Philadelphia Phillies deal Mike Cisco to the Angels

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors, Trades by joelapinski on Monday 18 March 2013 at 7:41 am

The Phillies have dealt 25-year old righty reliever Mike Cisco to the Angels for no compensation.  Cisco pitched in 40 games (0 starts) in AA+AAA-ball last year for the Phillies and he was 5-3 with 3 saves, a 1.80 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.  He pitched in 127 games (47 starts) in his five years in the minors for the Phillies and he was 29-22 with 6 saves, a 2.93 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.  The Phillies made this move for Cisco’s benefit, which is commendable.

The Philadelphia Phillies deal Michael Schwimer to the Blue Jays

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Trades by joelapinski on Sunday 24 February 2013 at 2:07 pm

The Phillies have dealt 27-year old righty reliever Michael Schwimer to the Blue Jays for 22-year old lefty swinging 1B Art Charles.  Schwimer pitched in 35 games (0 starts) for the Phillies last year and he was 2-1 with a 4.46 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP.  He pitched in 47 games (0 starts) in his two years with the Phillies and he was 3-2 with a 4.62 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP.  Art Charles played in 64 games in Rookie+A-ball last year for the Blue Jays and he was 50 for 212 (.236 avg, .909 OPS) with 37 runs scored, 13 homers, 34 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  He has now played in 169 games in his first three years in the minors and he is 140 of 585 (.239 avg, .840 OPS) with 100 runs scored, 28 homers, 108 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  Schwimer was going to have a hard time winning a spot in the Phillies’ bullpen, so they moved him for a prospect.

The Philadelphia Phillies acquire 3B Michael Young from the Rangers

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Trades by chinmusic on Saturday 8 December 2012 at 4:15 pm

The Phillies have acquired 36-year old righty swinging 3B Michael Young and cash from the Texas Rangers for 25-year old righty reliever Josh Lindblom and 22-year old righty reliever/starter Lisalverto Bonilla. Young played in 156 games for the Rangers last year and he was 169 of 611 (.277 avg, .682 OPS) with 79 runs scored, 8 homers, 67 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. He has now played in 1,823 games in his first 13 years in the majors and he is 2,230 of 7,399 (.301 avg, .791 OPS) with 1,085 runs scored, 177 homers, 984 RBIs and 89 stolen bases. Young will take over as the Phillies’ starting 3B in 2013 and he might really benefit from a change in leagues as he can still rip fastballs. Josh Lindblom was part of the return from the Dodgers in the Shane Victorino deal last July. He pitched in 26 games (0 starts) for the Phillies last year and he was 1-3 with 1 save, a 4.63 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP. Lisalverto Bonilla was the Phillies’ #12 prospect when the 2012 season started according to Baseball America. Bonilla pitched in 31 games (0 starts) in A+AA-ball for the Phillies last year and he was 3-2 with 4 saves, a 1.55 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP. The Phillies paid a lot for Young (just like they did for Revere), so they better hope he has something left in the gas tank.

The Philadelphia Phillies acquire Ben Revere from the Twins

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Trades by chinmusic on Thursday 6 December 2012 at 7:39 pm

The Philadelphia Phillies have acquired 24-year old lefty swinging CF Ben Revere from the Twins for 25-year old righty starting pitcher Vance Worley and 23-year old righty starting pitcher Trevor May. Revere played in 124 games for the Twins last year and he was 150 of 511 (.294 avg, .675 OPS) with 70 runs scored, 0 homers, 32 RBIs and 40 stolen bases. He has now played in 254 games in his first three years in the majors and he is 275 of 989 (.278 avg, .642 OPS) with 127 runs scored, 0 homers, 64 RBIs and 74 stolen bases. Revere will take over as the Phillies’ starting CF and leadoff hitter. Vance Worley pitched in 23 games (all starts) for the Phillies last year and he was 6-9 with a 4.20 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. Worley pitched in 53 games (46 starts) in his three years with the Phillies and he was 18-13 with a 3.50 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. Trevor May came into the 2012 season as the Phillies’ #1 prospect according to Baseball America. May pitched in 28 games (all starts) in AA-ball last year and he was 10-13 with a 4.87 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP. Revere didn’t come cheap to the Phillies, but he is going to really upgrade the team in 2013 and beyond, both offensively and defensively.
