Philadelphia Phillies Complete Trade With Colorado Rockies

The Philadelphia Phillies have executed a trade, sending outfielder Jake Cave to the Colorado Rockies, as reported by various sources including Matt Gelb of The Athletic and Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

Cave, distinguished for his left-handed hitting prowess, was a contender for a bench spot with the Phillies this spring.

However, with this trade, the dynamics of the team's bench options undergo a significant shift, potentially paving the way for other players like Cristian Pache to step up.

Last season, the 30-year-old posted a .212/.272/.348 triple-slash line, with five home runs, 21 RBIs, three stolen bases, and 18 runs scored across 65 games played.

Despite Cave's solid contributions in the past season and his impressive performance during spring training, the Phillies have opted to part ways with the 31-year-old outfielder.

The specifics of the return for this trade remain undisclosed at present.

With Cave's departure, the Phillies find themselves in search of a left-handed hitting outfielder, as noted by Bob Nightengale.

The trade not only alters the makeup of the Phillies' roster but also offers Cave a new opportunity with the Rockies.

Over his six-year MLB career, Cave holds a .231/.293/.401 triple-slash line, with 38 home runs, 139 RBIs, eight stolen bases, and 148 runs scored across 400 games played. Photo Credit: Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports
