Remember Burrell was replaced by a backup SS in Bruntlet for defensive help in 08. Bohm will be a much better leftfielder and his bat will come around. If Gregorious were to come back they could send Bohm to AAA to play LF with Torreyes/Miller manning 3B.
Looking beyond that at potential buyers and what the Phillies have to trade, I just don’t see to much excitement.
Gregorious – possibly Tampa or Oakland could be interested, but remember Trevor Story is on the market, too
Neris – possibly San Francisco, Toronto or Seattle – are the Cubs shopping their Kimbrel?
McCutchen – possibly Yankees, Chi Sox, Cleveland, Seattle, Milwaukee or San Fran (Gabe loves him) – but is he an upgrade over what any of them have? He brings the “experience” to a young clubhouse
Segura – Cubs or Dodgers, maybe – maybe even Seattle, the Yanks might be moving LeMahieu to 1B
Hoskins – Would Boston view him as an upgrade? Cleveland?
Kintzler, Hale, VV, Anderson, Bradley, Knapp just don’t have much, if any trade value
Eflin, Nola and Wheeler are only guaranteed to be together the next two-seasons, so the window isn’t opened to wide right now.
I hope DD can work some magic.
