Phillies Satisfied With Current Bench

According to's Todd Zolecki, the Phillies have no immediate plans to add another bench player.  

"We're always looking to improve, but nothing is imminent," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Saturday.  The Phils appear content with their current list of reserves, a group that consists of Greg Dobbs, Matt Stairs, Eric Bruntlett, Chris Coste and Miguel Cairo. Amaro was thought to be on the hunt for a right-handed hitter, but he'll apparently stand pat for now.

The Phillies, as you'll probably remember, were one of the first teams to express serious interest in Gary Sheffield before he signed with the Mets.
