The Phillies received a triple-A and a high single-A prospect from the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Chase Utley trade. Here is a look at the two players coming to the Phillies.
Darnell Sweeney: 6-1, 195 INF-OF
The Phillies announced that Sweeney, 24, will be called up to take Utley's spot on the 25-man roster. He batted .271 for the triple-A Oklahoma City Dodgers with 30 doubles, four triples, nine home runs, 49 RBIs and a .741 on base plus slugging percentage. He also had 32 stolen bases in 45 attempts.
Sweeney was rated the Dodgers 13th best prospect by MLBpipeline.com. This season he made 45 appearances at second base, four at third base, 19 in left field, 43 in center field and five as a designated hitter. Sweeney was named to the triple-A all-star game this year. A switch-hitter, Sweeney was selected in the 13th round of the 2012 First-Year Player Draft by the Dodgers out of Central Florida. He was a 41st round draft choice of the Florida Marlins out of high school in 2009 but didn't sign.
John Richy: 6-4, 215 RHP
