UPDATE (8/30 9:27 a.m.): Fabio Castro is going to Toronto. Not a prospect, probably could pitch in the majors. No big loss.
Ken Rosenthal reported overnight the Phillies acquired Matt Stairs from the Blue Jays for a prospect not known at the moment.
Stairs, a left-handed designated hitter who can play the outfield and possibly first base, is hitting .250 with 11 home runs and 44 RBI for the Jays this season.
Hopefully this isn’t one the better prospects leaving. As it stands, Stairs is an automatic improvement on Geoff Jenkins, who is on the 15-day DL.
