8. Garrett Stubbs, catcher

Along with Donny Sands from the New York Yankees, the Phillies also acquired fellow catcher Garrett Stubbs from the Houston Astros for an outfield prospect in mid-November.

J.T. Realmuto, Rafael Marchan, Donny Sands and Stubbs now make up the Phillies’ crowded catcher depth chart at the higher levels in their organization — hinting a possible trade could be in the works once the lockout ends.

A three-year veteran, the 28-year-old Stubbs is only a .182/.247/.485 career hitter. In 18 games last year as an Astro, he logged four singles and a pair of doubles spanning 38 plate appearances. At the Triple-A level, however, he produced a much better .265/.418/.363 slash line with 25 singles, five doubles, two home runs and 15 RBI across 37 games and 146 plate appearances.

9. Ryan Sherriff, left-handed pitcher

An early offseason move made my President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski was claiming southpaw reliever Ryan Sherriff off of waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays.

The four-year veteran struggled in 2021 with a 5.52 ERA and 16-9 strikeouts-to-walks ratio in 14 2/3 innings. The season prior, however, he shined with a perfect 0.00 ERA and 0.828 WHIP across 10 appearances and 9 2/3 innings.

Once the lockout ends, the Phillies clearly still have work to do to round out their 2022 roster, but they will not be starting from the ground up — considering these nine already-completed moves. Corey Knebel is poised to be the most productive among the group, but any combination of contributions from the eight others just might help the team reach the postseason for the first time since 2011.
