Report: Phillies Showing Interest in Rodon
We inch closer and closer to the 6:00 p.m. trade deadline. All indications are that the Phillies are heavily involved in a starting pitching pursuit.

Rodon signed a two-year deal ahead of the 2022 season. However, there is an opt-out in the deal. That means the Phillies could lose Rodon after the year. In that case, they may be reluctant to include a top prospect.
