Last year the Phillies added several young players, whether through trade or the Rule 5 Draft. The Giles trade injected even more talent into the system, but thus far the Phillies have not had the opportunity to make a similar move.
I don’t blame Klentak for not moving a player like Hernandez or Herrera for a package of questions. Undoubtedly conversations were had regarding not just those two, but several other players.
Don’t rule out a trade still taking place, especially Hernandez considering Howie Kendrick is now on the roster. Klentak may not get the kind of haul Giles or Hamels commanded, but the more talent the merrier.
It appears Klentak is done making the major moves, but don’t be surprised if something comes up. No one is untouchable for this team, and that makes this offseason even more intriguing.
