Following two seasons in which Philly nearly captured the team’s third World Series championship, they appear ready to accomplish the ultimate goal in 2024 and will undoubtedly be involved in trade talks before the MLB trade deadline of July 30. The bullpen is one area that many in baseball anticipate President Dave Dombrowski will focus on.

The organization has been mentioned in trade rumors for talented Oakland A’s closer Mason Miller in recent weeks. When a Phillies fan questioned Jim Bowden, the former general manager of The Athletic, about it on Friday, he revealed the potential cost of a transaction, and it is high.

Mason Miller’s (2024) stats include: 22 innings pitched, 42 strikeouts, 4 walks, 9 saves, a 2.05 ERA, and a 0.773 ERA.

The top three MLB prospects recommended by Bowden are members of the Philadelphia organization’s rankings. It is reasonable to think about giving away two of them for a middle-of-the-order hitter or an elite pitcher, but it is unexpected coming from a 25-year-old who has only made 27 league appearances.

The key concerns will be the Philadelphia Brass’s level of desperation to win a championship and their estimation of Mason Miller’s skill.
