Phillies Acquire Taschner

The Phillies acquired left handed relief pitcher Jack Taschner from the San Francisco Giants for catcher Ronnie Paulino, who the Phillies acquired in December.

With the deal, the Phillies add a much needed left handed pitcher with the absence of J.C. Romero. Chris Coste will start as Carlos Ruiz’ backup, and J.A Happ could win the 5th spot in the rotation with Chan Ho Park moving to the bullpen.

Taschner, 30, has a career 5.01 ERA in 4 seasons. Lefties batted .279 against Taschner last season.

More Hardball wants to know which city has the hottest fans in Major League Baseball. We started out by going division by division in each league, then the past two weeks were the playoffs. Now it's time for the World Series of Hotness with the Philadelphia Phillies vs. the Los Angeles Angels.

We'd appreciate a plug.

Taschner ends up at Coca-Cola Park perhaps?

Taschner may be an Ironpig after JC serves his suspension.
