Phils, Reds Considering Hermanson

According to Jim Salisbury of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Dustin Hermanson will throw for teams this week.  It’s likely that the Phillies will have a look at the 34 year old reliever.  Could be a sleeper for saves, for the fantasy baseball-minded.  The Reds will watch him pitch as well.

Salisbury also says:

"Schilling wants a contract extension by opening day or he’ll test the free-agent market. Start those Phillies rumors."

Freddy Garcia and Jon Lieber will be free agents after the 2007 season, so the Phillies will have an opening.  However, if this offseason is any indication, the Phils will have a tough time winning a bidding war.
