Stairs to Phils

Fox Sports reports that the Phillies have acquired Matt Stairs from the Toronto Blue Jays for a minor leaguer.

The Phillies got the lefthanded bat they needed after they couldn't land Mark Kotsay from the Braves and Geoff Jenkins went on the DL. Stairs was hitting .250 with 11 homers and 44 RBIs before the Jays designated him for assignment.
