Here’s an open discussion thread so the minor league posts don’t get cluttered with Phillies’ talk and other topics.
- Another name has entered the discussion surrounding the the Phillies’ search to fill their vacant GM position. It was reported this week that Cardinals’ Director of Player Personell, Matt Slater, has interviewed for the position. Former Marlins GM Larry Beinfest has also been interviewed. Indians executive Ross Atkins is also believed to have interviewed. Others who have been mentioned as candidates are Matt Klentak of the Angels front office, Kim Ng of the Commissioner’s office, Thad Levine of the Rangers front office, Ben Cherington formerly Boston’s GM, and Royals assistant GM J.J. Piccolo.
- The Phillies signed local LHP Jeff Singer to a contract this week. Singer was not drafted undrafted this spring and subsequently signed with the Camden Riversharks.
