A collection of Phillies links...
- An oblique strain will knock out Phillies starter Joe Blanton for three to six weeks, and Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweets that the Phils are now looking for pitching. However, Rosenthal's source says there's not much out there. For now, Kyle Kendrick will replace Blanton.
- GM Ruben Amaro Jr. told David Murphy of the Philadelphia Daily News that the Phillies have maintained contact with Pedro Martinez but have not talked to Scott Boras about Jarrod Washburn. He says the two free agents are not options as a response to the Blanton injury, though Murphy believes another injury to the staff might change things.
- Ashley Fox of the Philadelphia Inquirer talked to Curt Schilling, who says trading Cliff Lee was a "stupid, stupid move." I wasn't a fan either, but I don't agree with Schilling's implication that Amaro was concerned with the public perception of the team's minor league system. Amaro actually took the unpopular route in trading Lee.
- Patrick Newman of NPB Tracker passes along a Nikkan Sports report saying the Hanshin Tigers will acquire pitcher Jason Standridge. The Phillies had signed the former first-round pick to a minor league deal in January.
