In Search For An Outfielder – Philadelphia Phillies


In Search For An Outfielder – Philadelphia Phillies

So far, we have identified the following outfielders as possible targets for the Mets:

                Atlanta – Reed Johnson
                Arizona – A.J. Pollock
Baltimore – Nolan Reimold
                Boston – Jerry Sands
                Chicago Cubs – Brett Jackson
Chicago White Sox - Dayan Viciedo
Cincinnati – Chris Heisey
                Cleveland – Thomas Neal -
                Colorado – Dexter Fowler
Detroit – none
Kansas City – none
Los Angeles Angels – Mark Trumbo
Los Angeles Dodgers – Alex Castellanos
Miami Marlins – Gorkys Hernandez
Milwaukee Brewers – Khris Davis
Minnesota Twins – None
Oakland Athletics – Grant Green
New York Yankees - None
Pittsburgh – Jose Tabata

We now move on to the Philadelphia Phillies, who currently have seven (7) outfielders on their 40-man

                Domonic Brown – lefty –  ARB-1 in 2015 – MLB:  187-AB, .235
                Zach Collier – lefty –  pre-ARB -
                Tyson Gillies – lefty –  pre-ARB -
                Ender Inciarte – lefty –
                John Mayberry – righty – ARB-1 in 2014 -  MLB – 441-AB, 14-HR, 46-RBI
                Laynce Nix – lefty – $1,35mil in 2013 – FA-2014 – MLB: 114-AB, .246
                Ben Revere – lefty -  ARB-1 in 2014 –

A fair amount of people that played in the Philadelphia outfield last season are now gone.  We can talk about this team all day but they still will only have one righty in the outfield. In addition, the system is pretty lean and Brown has basically been a dud.

Newly signed Revere and Mayberry will get most of the at-bats. One of the weakest Phillies outfield in years, maybe decades.

Mets target:  None
