The Philadelphia Phillies saw two free agent outfielders sign with new teams last week, leaving their list of available options a little lighter but still lengthy nonetheless.
However, with all of these options, the Phils will also be competing with multiple teams both in signing players and in setting the market at various positions.
The Phillies are also in a different situation this offseason. Yes, they still have money to spend and have pieces already in place, but this is also their first offseason following a regular season that ended without a trip to the postseason since 2006.
Ideally, the Phillies will be able to convince their top targets that they can return to the playoffs quickly, and that salary demands are not a problem.
Of course, this won’t be the case with every free agent, but there are enough options available that give the Phils a chance to turn things around next season with the right signings.
Here are 12 dream free agent pickups for the Phillies who, although they cannot sign every player on this list, can still fill big-time needs heading into next season.
