PHILS TAIJUAN WALKER HAS VIRTUALLY NO TRADE VALUE!

By Peter Marks

Check out The Athletic’s Jim Bowden’s thoughts on Taijuan Walker:

11. Hey, Jim. Thoughts on the Phillies’ Taijuan Walker predicament?

Any shot he’s dealt (with 50 percent to 75 percent of his salary paid) for prospects in a three-team deal that gets the Phillies their coveted outfield bat:

Luis Robert Jr., Ian Happ, Jake McCarthy, Jazz Chisholm Jr., etc? — Nate P.

 

Bowden:

He’s on the IL with a blister on his right index finger.

At this point, the right-hander doesn’t have much trade value even if the Phillies pay most of his remaining salary, especially for players the caliber of Robert, Happ, McCarthy and Chisholm.

If the Phillies are going to land those types of players, they’ll have to offer some of their best prospects, especially for Robert and Chisholm.
