Phillies acquire slugger Bour

Written By: Séamus Doyle | @saintseamus

The Phillies have acquired 1B Justin Bour from the Miami Marlins for minor league lefty McKenzie Mills.

Bour brings a much needed power bat to the Phils bench. He’s hitting .227 with 19 homers, 54 RBIS and a .759 OPS.

Bour also has staggeringly good numbers against the Atlanta Braves this year. Matt Klentak saw his .304 BA, 2 HRs and 16 walks against Atlanta who the Phils are in a battle with for first place.

In my opinion, this is yet another move by the Phillies front office that proves the Phils are in it to win it.
