MLB Free Agency: Phillies Rumored To Have Interest In Aramis Ramirez

Rumor has it Philadelphia could be looking for an offensive upgrade at third base in MLB free agency. The Phillies are "strong players" for Aramis Ramirez, according to The Palm Beach Post's Joe Capozzi

The Phillies already have 2011 Gold Glove award winner Placido Polanco under contract for 2012, but health is a concern for the 36-year-old who will be returning from double hernia surgery, which he had in October.

According to  MLB Trade Rumors the Angels and Brewers are also in contention to sign the third baseman. Last season, Ramirez hit .306 with 26 home runs and an OPS+ of 136, the second-best mark of his career, for the Cubs.
