Phillies Nation Reports Unlikelihood of Adding Another Major Starting Pitcher for Phillies

Never say never, but it doesn’t appear that Philadelphia Phillies president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski intends to add another major starting pitcher before the start of the 2024 season.

Matt Gelb of The Athletic wrote Friday that “the Phillies are not, barring an unforeseen market collapse, interested in Blake Snell or Jordan Montgomery, according to a major-league source.”

That isn’t an especially surprising development considering Aaron Nola returned on a seven-year/$172 million deal back in November, and the Phillies project to return all five starters that got them to the NLCS a season ago. Nola, Zack Wheeler and Ranger Suárez make up one of the better trios in the league. The Phillies would probably like a mulligan on the four-year/$72 million deal they gave Taijaun Walker last offseason, but he did log 172 2/3 regular season innings in 2023, so it’s hardly as though he provided no value. And Cristopher Sánchez — who has no remaining minor-league options — earned a spot in the rotation by posting a 3.44 ERA across 99 1/3 innings a season ago.
