Phillies Targeting Adrian Beltre

Major league and team sources have indicated that Phillies' GM Ruben Amaro is targeting free agent third baseman Adrian Beltre, according to Randy Miller of The Bucks County Courier Times. However, Amaro apparently knows that money may be an issue, because Scott Boras is "believed to be after a four-year deal."

The Phillies are shopping around for someone to man the hot corner after turning down Pedro Feliz's option, and the 30-year-old Beltre seems like a natural fit given his excellent defense and solid bat, assuming his shoulder is healthy.
