Could Kansas City Royals lefthander Ron Mahay be headed to the Phillies?
Maybe, but I spoke with a Phillies source earlier today and he said they are not close to a deal with the Royals. In fact, he said there is no proposal on the table. That could change with the Phillies looking for a lefthanded relief pitcher before Thursday's 4 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline. ESPN.com reported that double-A Reading shortstop Jason Donald could be part of a deal for Mahay, who is having a great season and is signed for $4 million in 2009. But again, there apparently is no deal on the table.
The Phillies have recalled lefthander J.A. Happ to take righthander Adam Eaton's spot in the bullpen.
