The Phillies are hurtling to one of the worst seasons in their history, and the Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo has the scoop on their trade possibilities:

We mentioned the possibility of them taking on Giancarlo Stanton’s contract while also having interest in ChristianYelich. Well, the Yelich part is heating up. There are conflicting stories on whether the Marlins have the OK to trade away major talent as the franchise is being sold, but it looks like the Phillies will pursue this.
