Perhaps the Phillies could see J.C. Romero sooner than they thought.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, a team source said the Cardinals planned to investigate Romero's availability. The lefty reliever was designated for assignment after yesterday's game, meaning the Phillies have 10 days to release him, outright or trade him.

According to the report, Cardinals manager Tony La Russa did not dismiss Romero as a person of interest and general manager John Mozeliak seems willing to look for bullpen help.

Romero was on the Cardinals' radar in the offseason before he returned to the Phillies on a 1-year deal.
