With the FanSided Offseason Simulation in the books, where do the Phillies stand moving forward after making a bevy of moves?
DISCLAIMER: The following article pertains to the FanSided MLB Offseason simulation and in no way reflects real events.
The Phillies made one last acquisition before the FanSided MLB Winter Meetings ended Wednesday night, signing infielder Cliff Pennington to a minor-league contract. If he makes the major-league team, he will make one million dollars. He also has the option to opt out after April 30 if he is not on the major-league team by then.
Pennington’s signing was the fourth and final signing of the meetings for Philadelphia. They signed Alex Cobb, Tommy Hunter, and Seth Smith on Tuesday. They also made four trades, sending off Cesar Hernandez, Tommy Joseph, Cameron Rupp, and Parker Bridwell (acquired in the Hernandez trade) for various players.
With all these moves now in the books, where does it leave the Phillies heading into 2018?
