Phillies Likely Done Making Moves

The Phillies haven't added the type of high-profile free agents they have in recent years, but they may be done making moves despite that fact. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. told reporters, including Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer, that his work this winter is probably done:

"We're likely going with what we've got," Ruben Amaro Jr. said.

Amaro noted that entering the season with a number of platoons and uncertainties isn't ideal. He wouldn't rule out another veteran addition, but said any further signings would likely be of the low-risk, high-reward variety. The Phillies do have a bit of money to spend, but that flexibility may come into play closer to the trade deadline rather than this offseason.

As MLBTR's Transaction Tracker shows, this offseason's only major free agent signings include John Lannan and Mike Adams. Amaro has also acquired Michael Young and Ben Revere via trade, though in doing so he subtracted a key piece of his 2013 rotation in Vance Worley.
