Phillies acquired C Jorge Alfaro, RHP Jake Thompson, OF Nick Williams, RHP Alec Asher, LHP Matt Harrison and RHP Jerad Eickhoff from the Rangers for LHP Cole Hamels, LHP Jake Diekman and cash.
Alfaro won't necessarily be the best player the Phillies are getting here, but he likely was their top priority, what with Carlos Ruiz's career winding down and no other potential starting catcher in the organization. Alfaro is on the shelf now with an ankle injury and might not be back this year, but he offers quite a bit of offensive potential and plenty of tools behind the plate. His skills haven't made him a major league-quality receiver yet, but he still should get there in time. It'd probably be for the best if he's not needed until 2017, giving him a full year in Triple-A next season. Jul 31 - 12:23 PM
