    man they couldn't have given up much. He's making 13 mil next year, I'd assume they're getting a ton of money back.

    Wasn't he a future ace back in the day? How old is he now?

    He's 32 and they traded away some 2B named Tobias. Maybe he's still got some good years ahead of him.

    he never lived up to his potential. He had a good K rate in the minors but it didn't translate to the majors at all. Had one good year in the majors when he went 17-7 but that was probably just a fluke.

    Translation: he's garbage.

    This is a good trade for the Phillies. It gives them a veteran presence. It's just for one season. If he sucks, just let him walk away. If he is better than expected, then they can get prospects for him near the trade deadline or offer him arbitration. So this is the Hellickson trade all over again.

    Bucholz had a good last couple of the months at the end of 2016 too apparently pitching from the stretch the whole time.

    They kept Hellickson and then paid him a bunch of money, though. And he sucks.

    He did ok. And considering what you have to pay for even average pitching, it's not a terrible one-year deal.
