Phillies Complete Trade With Angels

The Los Angeles Angels are certainly active in the hours leading up to the deadline at 6pm ET. In addition to a number of talks ongoing for a couple of pitchers, they've now completed a trade to send outfielder Brandon Marsh to the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Phillies have sent their No. 3 prospect Logan O'Hoppe to Anaheim in return for Marsh. 

The 24-year-old Marsh has not been tearing it up this season with the Angels, hitting just .226 with a .284 OPS, along with 8 HR and 8 SB. He will likely slot right into center field, a position the Phillies have been desperate to strengthen all season. 

Eno Sarris of The Athletic likes the addition of Marsh for the Phils, but recognizes they gave up a solid prospect in catcher O'Hoppe.  The 22-year-old is powering up at Double-A this season, with 15 HR and 45 RBIs, along with an .877 OPS.
