The Philadelphia Phillies have acquired 24-year-old center fielder Brandon Marsh from the Los Angeles Angels, according to Jeff Passan.

The Phillies are reportedly sending their double-A catching prospect Logan O'Hoppe to the Angels in exchange for Marsh. MLB.com ranks O'Hoppe as the Phillies' third best 2022 prospect.

Marsh, in his second MLB season, is a strong defender and can play all three outfield positions. Offensively, however, the left-handed hitter is batting just .226 with eight homers, 37 RBI, and 117 strikeouts in 93 games.
