Phillies trying to move Victorino for bullpen help, realize they will have to pay some of his contract...Dodgers/Reds continue talks w/Phils— JIM BOWDEN (@JimBowdenESPNxm) July 25, 2012
Phillies interested in Victorino-Ondrusek deal with Reds or Victornio-Lindblom deal with Dodgers— JIM BOWDEN (@JimBowdenESPNxm) July 25, 2012
Bowden says the Phillies have interest in a trade that would send Victorino to the Reds in exchange for right-handed reliever Logan Ondrusek or to the Dodgers for righty reliever Josh Lindblom.
Ondrusek, 27, has appeared in 43 games for the Reds this season, posting an ERA and WHIP of 2.70 and 1.309 over 36 2/3 innings. The right-hander owns career marks of 3.27 and 1.277 with 6.0 SO/9 and 3.8 BB/9. He’s under team control through the 2016 season.
Lindblom has maintained an ERA and WHIP of 3.18 and 1.213 over 45 1/3 innings for the Dodgers this season. The 25-year-old owns career marks of 3.00 and 1.147 and is under team control through the 2017 season.
Should the Phillies give up Victorino for a reliever?
