Baldelli to Phillies?

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Phillies have had interest in outfielder Rocco Baldelli for a long time and may look to sign him for a three way platoon with Matt Stairs and Geoff Jenkins. Baldelli suffers from a disease that causes serious muscle fatigue, so he may be only to play in 60-70 games over the course of a season. Baldelli, 27, is a free agent and hit .263 with 4 HR in 28 games, but is a career .281 hitter in 447 career games. While it is unlikely that Baldelli will leave the Rays, it is even more unlikely that he will leave for the Phillies, who recently beat the Rays in the World Series.
