Philadelphia Phillies & Tampa Bay Rays Agree To Trade

The Philadelphia Phillies have acquired outfielder Jordan Qsar from the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for cash considerations or a player to be named later.

Qsar played in Double-A and Triple-A last season, hitting .227/.321/.452 with 17 home runs and 11 stolen bases in 102 games. He is a left-handed hitter who can play all three outfield positions and is expected to provide depth in the upper minors for the Phillies.

Despite striking out 120 times in just 273 at-bats, Qsar has shown potential with his power and speed.

He could be a valuable asset for the Phillies in the future, although he will likely start the season in the minor leagues.

This acquisition comes as a surprise as the Phillies were reportedly in the market for a right-handed outfield bat, but Qsar's versatility and potential upside may have been too good to pass up.

With the Rays, Qsar had a difficult path to the major leagues, but he may have a clearer path to playing time with his new organization.

The Phillies are in need of outfield depth, and Qsar's ability to play all three positions could prove to be valuable down the line.

Overall, this trade is a low-risk move for the Phillies, as they acquire a young player with potential at a relatively low cost. Photo Credit: Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports
