GM Ruben Amaro Jr. hinted that the Phillies could trade for a starting pitcher earlier today, telling reporters that he has a plan for Saturday, when there's a hole in the team's rotation.
"We know exactly what we’re going to do," Amaro said. "I just choose not to tell you."
Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com heard that the Phils are still looking for a "high-end" starter and that was before Jamie Moyer strained his left elbow tonight. So will the Phillies wait it out with J.A. Happ and others already in the organization? They have already committed $135MM to next year's payroll, but the third-place Phils consider themselves "buyers."
