Helms Traded to the Marlins

The Phillies found somebody to take infielder Wes Helms off their hands.

They traded Helms to the Florida Marlins tonight for cash or a player to be named later. It's unclear how much cash would be involved, but the Phillies certainly wanted somebody to pay at least some portion of his $2.9 million salary, which includes a $750,000 buyout for a 2009 club option. The Phillies designated Helms for assignment Wednesday when they signed righthander Rudy Seanez as a free agent.
