The Phillies traded for Marlins’ first baseman Justin Bour, according to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal who broke the news on Twitter this afternoon.

On the season, Bour is slashing .227/.347/.412/.759 with 19 homers and 54 RBIs.

Bour will come in and give the Phillies another option off the bench. The bench keeps getting deeper and deeper as the Phillies look like a legitimate contender for the NL Crown. Be bold indeed, Matt Klentak.

This move reminds me a lot of when the Phillies acquired Matt Stairs in 2008. Cue “Bour rips one into the night!”

Mills responded after the trade was made official on social media.
