Yesterday the Phillies acquired utility player Jimmy Paredes in a trade with the Toronto Blue Jays in which the Blue Jays will receive cash considerations. Paredes is able to play 2nd and 3rd base as well as both corner outfield positions. It is hoped that Paredes will provide more pop for the struggling Phils offense. To make room on the roster, the Phillies have designated Emmanuel Burriss for assignment.
Paredes has also previously played for the Houston Astros, Kansas City Royals and Baltimore Orioles.
Talk to you soon,
