Phillies acquire starting pitcher

The Philadelphia Phillies and the Minnesota Twins have come to an agreement to send pitcher Mike Morin to the Phillies in exchange for “Cash Considerations”.

While I think it’s unlikely for Zack Wheeler to end up with the Phillies, you never really know. However, this deal will not effect Philadelphia’s interest in Wheeler as Mike Morin seems to be more of a temporary plug as opposed to a season long solution.

Morin was DFA’d by the Twins about a week ago and had pitched 22.2 innings while sporting a 3.18 ERA over 23 appearances.
