Jason Marquis is looking worthy of a promotion. In 3 minor league starts he boasts a 0.50 ERA/0.83 WHIP over 18 innings with 19 strikeouts. Of course, should KK be traded, instantly a spot in the rotation opens for him.
Grady Sizemore is making a decent first impression too, batting .300/.867 in 5 games with the Iron Pigs. I foresee Marlon Byrd being traded, opening a spot for a platoon in RF of Sizemore and Ruf.
The Phillies have the 4th worst record in baseball (36-48), 4th fewest runs (319), and the 2nd worst OPS (.669). That's pathetic. Be ashamed.
Mike Adams has been placed on the 60-day DL, so that eliminates any chance of him being traded before July 31.
