After acquiring center fielder Ben Revere from the Twins on Thursday and third baseman Michael Young from the Rangers earlier today, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports hears that Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. might have a bigger trick up his sleeve in the days ahead.

Phillies fans better hope so, at least if they want to make a legitimate run in 2013. While Revere should do well in center field, they still need at least one more bat for their outfield, a set-up man in front of Jonathan Papelbon and a starter to supplement the loss of Vance Worley. Meanwhile, the Nationals have reloaded with center fielder Denard Span and right-hander Dan Haren while the Braves have added center fielder B.J. Upton. Reclaiming the National League East crown isn’t going to be easy.
