Phillies seeking 1-year rental to bolster rotation

David Banks

Philly.com Sports: Since trading Vance Worley to the Minnesota Twins, the Philadelphia Phillies have needed to find a fifth starter for their starting rotation. Matt Gelb explains what kind of options the team has.

So forget the Ryan Dempsters, Edwin Jacksons, and even Shaun Marcums on the market. They will sign for at least two - maybe three - years, given the demand. The Phillies are looking for a one-year deal having already invested $71.75 million in 2013 salary for their four starting pitchers.
