The Philadelphia Phillies made the MLB playoffs last season as the third wild card team, making an October run all the way to the World Series. One season later, Philadelphia is shaping up to be one of the biggest question marks at the trade deadline.
MLB trade rumors have begun flying in June, with an early look at what players will be available and what teams are buying or selling. The Phillies are sitting further down in the MLB standings than anyone expected, struggling to climb their way back to the .500 mark.
In an interview with Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, Phillies’ president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski addressed his approach to the 2023 trade deadline. While he has been a seller in the past, he doesn’t view this year’s Phillies as being in the same position as the 2015 Detroit Tigers.
