The Phillies had a scout in Anaheim this weekend to take a look at Oakland's Nomar Garciappara, according to report in the San Francisco Chronicle.
The team had discussions with Garciaparra in the offseason. Garciappara, who did not play in the weekend series against the Angels, has cleared waivers, according to the report.
A team source told the Daily News today that the Phillies considered pusuing Garciappara but it is not likely to happen. Today is the last day that players can be added to rosters and still be eligible for the postseason.
Garciaparra has started once in the past 12 games. He is 0 for his past 14 pinch-hit at-bats. He has appeared in 55 games with 129 at-bats, and is hitting .264 with two home runs and 13 RBI.
Also, the Phillies announced that they have selected the contract of righthander John Ennis from Triple A Lehigh Valley. Ennis, who had Tommy John surgery in April, will immediately be placed on the 15-day disabled list.
To make room for Ennis on the 40-man roster, infielder Brad Harman was designated for assignment.
