The Phillies can trade Didi Gregorius
Nothing against Didi Gregorius, but he’s blocking Bryson Stott’s path. The former is the Phillies’ past, the latter, their future.
Stott needs to play consistently in order to continue developing into a big-league player, but his side of the infield is overcrowded with Gregorius, Alec Bohm, and Johan Camargo.
Of course, the reason the Phillies need to trade him is also the reason it’s hard to see a team willing to take him on. His contract is pricy, he gets injured more than occasionally, and his offense and defense are lacking. But if the Phillies can package him with a prospect and pay part of his remaining salary to send him on his way, they should.
However, Gregorius is currently hitting well enough that recency bias might cloud other teams’ judgment. He has 17 hits in 18 games, including four doubles.
