Philadelphia Phillies Chasing After Moises Alou

Recent reports surfacing over the last few weeks have identified Nomar Garciaparra as a possible candidate to join the Philadelphia Phillies roster this offseason.

However, as talks continue, Nomar is still undecided whether or not he wants to hang up the spikes on his career.

As the waiting game continues, reports are now beginning to confirm the World Champion Phillies may be interested in LF Moises Alou to fill one of these final reserve positions.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. confirmed the Philles are indeed interested in Alou.

The team is currently searching for a strong right-handed bat who could be used off the bench whenever needed. With the degree of uncertainty about Nomar continuing his professional career, the Phillies are beginning to focus elsewhere.

Alou has spent the last two years with the New York Mets before becoming a free agent this offseason. In 2008, Moises saw 49 appearances at the plate—17 of which were scored as hits. The left fielder is also expected to play for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic this coming March.

Other players possibly on the Phillies list include free agents Mark Grudzielanek, Rich Aurilia, and Kevin Millar.
