Report: Phillies Interested in Free Agent Josh Donaldson
According to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, the Phillies have expressed interest in third baseman Josh Donaldson, who hit .259 with 37 home runs and 94 RBI last season on a one-year deal with Atlanta.
Third base is definitely a spot where the Phillies could use an upgrade to their everyday lineup, where Maikel Franco hit just .234 with 17 homers and 56 RBI through 123 games last season - Donaldson would represent a big upgrade to Franco, whose been a major disappointment.
Expect the Phillies to have competition for his services, with the Texas Rangers expressing interest, as well as the Braves, who have a desire to re-sign him as well.
Other third baseman the Phillies could target include, Mike Moustakas and Anthony Rendon, who are both free agents.
