The Phillies have traded Wes Helms to the Florida Marlins for cash.

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.
