IN LIMBO: LHP Antonio Bastardo, LF Domonic Brown, RHP A.J. Burnett, LHP Cole Hamels, LHP Cliff Lee, RHP Jonathan Papelbon, C Carlos Ruiz, 1B Ryan Howard, SS Jimmy Rollins, RF Marlon Byrd
The Phillies are looking to shed salary and add prospects. Thus, any player making a significant amount of money -- with the exception of second baseman Chase Utley, who says he would not waive the no-trade clause in his contract -- could be had for the right price.
--RHP A.J. Burnett (hernia) said he will have surgery in October, though no specific date was announced. Burnett pitched with the hernia all season.
--CF Ben Revere (sore right ankle) will have screws that were placed in his ankle in 2013 surgically removed sometime in October. Revere said the screws caused him to play in pain at various points of the season, and doctors say surgery should alleviate the discomfort.
--SS Jimmy Rollins (strained left hamstring) missed the last three weeks of the season.
--LHP Mario Hollands (left elbow flexor strain) will not require surgery. He will rest his arm in hopes of being ready for the 2015 season.
--LHP Cliff Lee (left flexor pronator strain) will not require surgery. He might begin throwing in November, and he hopes to be ready for the start of next season.
