PHILS TARGETING BACK-END STARTER BEFORE TUESDAY’S DEADLINE

By Peter Marx

The Phils pulled the trigger on a trade for utility infielder Edmundo Sosa, and now they concentrate on pitching before Tuesday’s trade deadline, according to The Athletic’s Matt Gelb:

The Phillies will add a back-of-the-rotation starter.

They are on the long list of teams interested in rotation help.

Some will be more desperate than others; the Phillies will be without Zach Eflin for an undetermined period, and that should make them aggressive.

The club has balked at the current prices for No. 4/5 starter types, but they know it’ll require something decent to surrender because, in this market, demand outweighs supply.

Other teams will make bigger splashes, but the Phillies are treading a more conservative path because winning the division is far-fetched now.
