Report: Phillies linked to Kris Bryant


The Phillies are one of two teams linked to four-time All-Star Kris Bryant, according to Jon Morosi.

Bryant was traded by the Chicago Cubs to the San Francisco Giants in July, finishing the season as a combined .265/.353/.481 hitter with 25 homers and 73 RBIs. He played first base, outfield, and third base throughout the 2021 season.

Bryce Harper, speaking on 94WIP recently, made it clear he wants the Phillies to add a closer, center fielder, and a right-handed bat this offseason. Bryant would be that right-handed bat.

Morosi also has reported that the Phillies are in contact with right fielder Nick Castellanos.
