As ESPN's Jerry Crasnick just reported, the Phillies are soon to be parting ways with utility outfielder Nate Schierholtz. Schierholtz, acquired in the Hunter Pence trade this past season, was expendable with left-handed bats Laynce Nix and Domonic Brown. Schierholtz will soon be a free agent, adding another outfielder to the market.
The Phillies are obviously still in the pursuit of finding a centerfielder. With B.J. Upton now off the market, and Nate Schierholtz off the roster, the Phils may have to do a little extra shopping.
There are still many options for a centerfielder currently in the mix, including Josh Hamilton, Shane Victorino, Curtis Granderson, and Michael Bourn.
We're all waiting, Rube.
