First, the latest word is that the Phillies would send Cliff Lee
to Seattle for minor league pitcher Phillippe Aumont
. Aumont wouldn't be staying long though, because the Phillies would combine him with catching prospect Travis D'Arnaud
and outfielder Michael Taylor
to get Roy Halladay
It would appear that Seattle may also send a couple prospects to the Phillies as part of the deal. Speculation is that the players involved would be pitcher Brandon Morrow and/or outfielder Michael Saunders.
Please keep in mind that the details of this deal are unofficial.
We do know that Halladay and his agent are in Philadelphia for a physical and to negotiate a potential extension on his contract with the Phillies. The deal appears to be contingent on the two sides agreeing to a long-term extension.
The swap of Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee isn't official - yet. The deal is in the works though and would seem to have a pretty good chance of going through.
The Toronto ace is in Philly working on an extension before agreeing to a deal to the Phillies.
