Phillies claim Jose Bautista on waivers

6 Comments

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Phillies have claimed Jose Bautista on revocable trade waivers and are currently discussing a trade with the Mets.

As with all other waiver claims, the Mets have until a set deadline — some time on Tuesday in this case — to either trade Bautista to the Phillies, allow him to leave for nothing on waivers or to pull him back and keep him for the rest of the season.

Bautista got off to a surprisingly hot start after signing with the Mets, but overall he’s hitting just .199/.340/.368 in 338 plate appearances this season, including the 12 games he played for the Braves.

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
