The Toronto Sun is reporting that Phillies scout Charlie Kerfeld has been scouting the Blue Jays for two straight series.
The Phillies need bullpen help as well. Kerfeld watched the Jays’ three-game series in Baltimore and came to K.C. The last time a scout followed the Jays to successive cities was Atlanta Braves’ Jim Fregosi, who picked up the Jays in Philadelphia and followed them to Cleveland. And last Thursday, the Braves sent shortstop Yunel Escobar to the Jays for Alex Gonzalez.
The speculation is that the Phillies are looking at Jay’s arms Scott Downs, Kevin Gregg, or Jason Frasor.
