Griff McGarry chosen as ‘most likely to be traded’ by Bleacher Report
On Mondays and Thursdays on The Sports Bash, we have a segment called "One Thought on Every Game" with NFL writer KC Joyner giving his main thought on every NFL game.
The team over at Bleacher Report put together a list of one player from each MLB team most likely to be dealt this offseason.
While many Phillies fans have suggested moving Nick Castellanos, that is unlikely to happen.
So who did Bleacher Report select as the player most likely to be traded? Right-hander Griff McGarry.
McGarry has the type of high-octane arm that teams often target in trade talks, even if the results in the minors last year leave a lot to be desired.
If the Phillies moved the 24-year-old McGarry, what would they be looking for in return?
Tough call here, so I'm not sure moving McGarry makes a lot of sense. He could help at the MLB level in 2024, but that seems unlikely. Could the team move him to try and obtain a pitcher? Maybe a non-contending team with a veteran starting pitcher would value adding a younger, power arm to their organization.
Three names that USA Today MLB writer Bob Nightengale mentioned as trade targets this offseason, included Corbin Burnes, Tyler Glasnow, and Shane Bieber. Would McGarry help Dave Dombrowski land one of those three arms, if they were available?
At three minor league stops in 2023, McGarry went 1-3 with an ERA of 6.00 in 17 starts. His most impressive stat is his strikeouts, 81 in 60 innings.
The World Series is over, the Hot Stove League is here, and it's time for Dombrowski to make his moves to improve the team. WIll McGarry be a part of those moves? We shall see.
