Phillies Rumors: Placido Polanco, Aramis Ramirez, Jimmy Rollins, Laynce Nix

The Phillies are actively shopping Placido Polanco to make room for their current pursuit: Aramis Ramirez, according to Ken Rosenthal. Mike DiGiovanna points out that if the Angels remain interested, this could force their hands:

  • Twitter / @Ken_Rosenthal
    Rival exec: #Phillies actively trying to move Polanco. Would clear 3B for A. Ramirez.
  • For Phillies, everything hinges on Rollins - Ken Rosenthal
    "The rest of the Phillies’ offseason hinges on whether they re-sign free-agent shortstop Jimmy Rollins, a negotiation that one rival agent describes as “an epic Roman battle” between two strong-willed men, Rollins and Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr."

  • Twitter / @MikeDiGiovanna
    "If #Angels are serious about signing Aramis Ramirez, they might have to move quick. #Phillies appear to be in hot pursuit of FA 3B."
  • Aramis Ramirez Rumors: Phillies, Angels, Tigers - MLB Daily Dish
    "The fallout from the Reyes deal continues, with teams scrambling to find the next best available corner infielder. Enter: Aramis Ramirez rumors! So far we're seeing that the Phillies might be making a major play on Ramirez if they can't do something with Rollins (or perhaps this signals they won't) and the Angels are interested as well."

  • Great Point - Twitter / @Joelsherman1
    "No org has become more laser focused annually to get what want done than #Phillies. So far Papelbon, Thome, Wigginton, Nix this offseason."
  • Twitter / @Ken_Rosenthal
    Source: Nix two-year contract with #Phillies worth $2.5 million. Should not preclude other moves. #MLB
  • Twitter / @acomak
    He made $700,000 w/ #nats in 2011. Big raise. RT @ken_rosenthal: Source: Nix two-year contract with #Phillies worth $2.5 million.
  • Funny. - Twitter / @HitTheCutoff
    "Laynce Nix brings the unnecessary "y" the Phillies have missing since Jayson Werth left."
