Phillies get another reducer in trade with Giants initially appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia
The Phillies continued to include pitching depth with another trade Monday, getting right-handed reducer Yunior Marte from the San Francisco Giants in exchange for left-handed pitching possibility Erik Miller.
Marte, who appeared in 39 video games with the Giants in 2022, turns 28 in February. He started out 44 and strolled 22 with a 5.44 period in his very first big-league season.
Marte’s fastball balanced 97.8 miles per hour last season and a few of his under-the-hood metrics speak with prospective future success. He remained in the leading 3 percentile in the majors last season in barrel rate, which describes the hardest kind of contact made, balls in play with the exit speed and launch angle that have actually traditionally created much better than a .500 batting average and 1.500 punching portion.
Said clearly: He prevented the worst kind of contact at a high rate.
Marte has alternatives staying and does not require to be contributed to the Phillies’ 40-man lineup. He will likely complete for a bullpen task in spring training however might wind up opening the year at Triple A as relief depth.
Miller was the Phillies’ fourth-round choice in 2019. The 24-year-old had a 2.23 period in 22 looks with Double A Reading last season and enabled 10 runs in 12 innings at Triple A. MLB.com ranked Miller as the Phillies’ seventh-best possibility prior to the trade.
The Phillies’ bullpen has actually been remade this offseason with the losses of David Robertson and Zach Eflin and the additions of Craig Kimbrel, Gregory Soto and Matt Strahm. Between Seranthony Dominguez, Jose Alvarado, Kimbrel, Soto, Strahm, Andrew Bellatti and Connor Brogdon, 7 of the Phillies’ 8 or 9 bullpen areas seem promoted.
