Phillies Discussed Paul Byrd

As David Murphy of the Philadelphia Daily News reports, the Phillies have discussed adding free agent right-hander Paul Byrd, but aren't sure he'll present an upgrade.

"The question is whether Paul Byrd is going to be any better than any of the guys that we have -- Rodrigo Lopez, or [Carlos] Carrasco, or [Andrew] Carpenter or [Kyle] Kendrick,"
GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said Thursday.  "Why would he be any better than those guys?  We've brought up the name, we've talked about it.  We've talked about almost every guy that might be available, whether it is free agency or what."

It's safe to say the Phillies probably aren't too serious about adding the 38-year-old.  He was 11-12 with a 4.60 ERA last year between the Indians and Red Sox.
