In a surprise move earlier today ,the Detroit Tigers released veteran Gary Sheffield. Sheff is owed 14 M this season and is 1 homer away from 500
In a report over at MLB.com the Phillies are showing interest in the Slugger. They have released Geoff Jenkins. The Phillies are looking to bring Sheff to play in the bandbox in Philly since they could use another righty hitter.
Sheffield has not been the same in the outfield since a collision he had back in 2007. Sheffield seems to disrupt any team he is a part of but the Phillies could have him for the major league minimum.
