This trade would greatly benefit the Phillies, whose bullpen is posting a 4.72 ERA, which ranks 22nd in the majors. Honestly, I am not sure what return this would bring back considering the Phillies aren’t willing to part with any high-end prospects (Cough” Alec Bohm) and they are in the midst of a Wild Card run. Another reason this makes sense is that Colome is under control through the 2020 season so he wouldn’t be a rental.

With the injuries that have plagued the Phillies pitching staff this year, they may part with someone worthwhile.
