Phillies scouting White Sox pitchers

Bruce Levine of ESPNChicago.com is reporting that the Phillies sent top scouts to monitor White Sox pitchers Bobby Jenks and J.J. Putz. The White Sox are looking for a steady late inning reliever while Brad Lidge tries to stay healthy, as well as find his '08 form. 

The Phillies are currently 3.5 games ahead of the Braves, but they will need a reliable bullpen if they want to maintain the division lead. 

Bobby Jenks is an interesting target for the Phillies. He owns a career 3.32 ERA, but the White Sox have grown concerned recently over his physical health. Jenks, 29, will be a free agent after the 2011 season.

Putz, who will be a free agent after this season, is 0-2 so far this season with a 3.95 ERA. Putz played for the Mets in 2009 and is fairly familiar with the division.
