Phils Acquire Blanton

Oakland ditches another pitcher.

The Philadelphia Phillies acquired Oakland A’s pitcher Joe Blanton for second baseman Adrian Cardenas, pitcher Josh Outman and outfielder Matthew Spencer.

Blanton was 5-12 for Oakland this year after having a very good year last year.

The Phillies have been looking for a starting pitcher to go behind Cole Hamels and Jamie Moyer and hope Blanton can fill the role.
