Phillies find their center fielder in Brandon Marsh


MLB: Texas Rangers at Los Angeles Angels Jonathan Hui-USA TODAY Sports

On the hunt for a center fielder that would be an upgrade over what they currently have, the Phillies seemingly have landed on Brandon Marsh.

Logan O’Hoppe was one of their best tradeable assets, but this seems very heavy to pay for a center fielder like Marsh who, while solid defensively, struggles with the bat. Striking out over 30% of his plate appearances, Marsh was once a top 100 prospect that has lost a little bit of luster, so we’ll see what happens here.

O’Hoppe was an untouchable mere days ago according to some sources, but now that appears to not be the case.

We’ll obviously have more on this later.

UPDATE: this one is official.
