Phillies have “cooled” on signing Yasmany Tomas

For months now the Phillies have been heavily linked to Cuban free agent Yasmany Tomas, but now Paul Hagen of MLB.com reports that they’ve “cooled on the idea of signing the 23-year-old.”

Apparently they still like his offensive potential a lot, but are worried that Tomas may be “more of a designated hitter-type player” defensively.

And of course their declining interest may also have something to do with his increasing price tag, as numerous other teams have been linked to him recently.
