  • Phillies' C.J. Chatham: Heading to Philadelphia

    Chatham was traded from Boston to Philadelphia in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations Monday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

    Chatham may have a big-league future but doesn't look set for stardom. The 26-year-old was part of the Red Sox's player pool last season but didn't get the chance to make his big-league debut. He's only played 20 games at the Triple-A level, posting a 92 wRC+. Chatham has a classic bench infielder profile, as he makes decent contact and can play a fine shortstop but has very little power, hitting .298/.337/.402 over four minor-league seasons. He'll be in the mix for a bench spot with the Phillies this spring but is unlikely to be an exciting fantasy option even if he winds up with unexpected playing time.

  • Phillies' Victor Arano: Dropped from 40-man roster

    The Phillies designated Arano for assignment Monday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Arano's removal from the 40-man roster clears a spot for infielder C.J. Chatham, whom the Phillies acquired from the Red Sox in a corresponding transaction. After he posted a 2.73 ERA while striking out 60 over 59.1 innings in his age-23 season in 2018, Arano looked like he might be a long-term piece in the Philadelphia bullpen, but the right-hander has struggled with elbow and shoulder injuries over the last two seasons. If he can show improved velocity and command at spring training, Arano could still have an outside shot at making the Phillies' Opening Day roster.

  • Phillies' Kyle Garlick: Loses 40-man spot

    The Phillies designated Garlick (oblique) for assignment Monday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    The transaction clears a spot on the 40-man roster for reliever Archie Bradley, whom the Phillies signed to a one-year, $6 million contract. Before suffering a right oblique strain in mid-September that ended his 2020 campaign two weeks early, Garlick went 3-for-22 (.136 average) with three RBI in 12 games with the Phillies.

  • Phillies' Rhys Hoskins: Avoids arbiter

    Hoskins (elbow) avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.8 million deal with the Phillies on Friday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Hoskins bounced back from an unimpressive 2019 season with a strong season at the plate in 2020, hitting .245/.384/.503 with 10 homers in 41 games. His season was cut short by an elbow injury which eventually required Tommy John surgery, placing his readiness for Opening Day in some doubt.

  • Phillies' Jose Alvarado: Reaches deal with Phillies

    Alvarado avoided arbitration by signing a one-year, $1 million contract Friday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    The Phillies will be hoping Alvarado can plug a hole in their historically leaky bullpen this season. He's been a high-leverage reliever at times in the past, but he's since struggled through a pair of injury-filled campaigns, posting a 5.08 ERA and a 17.3 percent walk rate over that stretch.

  • Phillies' Vince Velasquez: Reaches deal

    Velasquez signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the Phillies on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

    Now heading into his seventh big-league season, Velasquez has never had that anticipated breakout, but he's remained just useful enough for the Phillies to keep him around at a fairly low price. His 5.56 ERA in 34 innings last season was a career high, though his 4.16 FIP and 4.07 xFIP painted a much more optimistic picture, as did his career-high 29.9 percent strikeout rate.

  • Phillies' Archie Bradley: Signs with Phillies

    Bradley signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Phillies on Thursday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Bradley was non-tendered by Cincinnati in early December and was one of the top relief options in free agency. The right-hander spent time with the Diamondbacks and Reds in 2020, recording six saves while posting a 2.95 ERA and 1.09 WHIP over 18.1 innings. He could work in some high-leverage situations for Philadelphia and may very well contend for save chances right off the bat in 2021.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Dealt to Phillies

    Coonrod (shoulder) was traded from the Giants to the Phillies in exchange for right-hander Carson Ragsdale on Saturday, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN reports.

    Coonrod performed fairly well during his first major-league season in 2019, but he was unable to generate much production last year, converting on three of his five save chances while posting a 9.82 ERA and 1.64 WHIP over 14.2 innings. The right-hander was hindered by a shoulder injury late in the season, but he should be healthy heading into spring training. He'll attempt to generate more of a rhythm for the Phillies, although Hector Neris has a fairly stable grip on the closing job heading into 2021.

  • Phillies' Michael Ynoa: Joins Phillies on minors deal

    Ynoa joined the Phillies as a non-roster invitee Monday.

    Ynoa is very much a low-risk lottery ticket for the Phillies. The 29-year-old righty hasn't thrown a pitch at the highest level since 2017, but his 4.42 ERA in 59 career MLB innings is a respectable mark.

  • Phillies' Rhys Hoskins: Hits in cage

    Hoskins (elbow) shared video of himself hitting in a batting cage on his personal Twitter page Thursday.

    Hoskins was having a solid season at the plate before suffering a season-ending elbow injury in mid-September. He eventually underwent Tommy John surgery in early October and was given a return timeline that placed his readiness for Opening Day in some question. The first baseman stated Thursday that he was on track for spring training, but players tend to be on the optimistic end regarding their own timelines, so there's still no guarantee he avoids a trip to the injured list.

  • Phillies' Jose Alvarado: Traded to Phillies

    Alvarado was traded from the Rays to the Phillies on Tuesday as part of a three-team deal with the Dodgers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The 25-year-old lefty joins a team desperately in need of bullpen help, and the good version of Alvarado can certainly provide that, as his 2.39 ERA back in 2018 suggests. Over the last two injury-filled seasons, however, he's struggled to a 5.08 ERA in just 39 total frames, with a poor 17.3 percent walk rate offsetting a 27.2 percent strikeout rate. A full bounce-back could see Alvarado picking up saves at some point for his new team, with the inconsistent Hector Neris standing as the only real obstacle on the roster at the moment.
