Sources: Philadelphia Phillies open to trade offers for right-hander Zack Wheeler

The Philadelphia Phillies have communicated to other teams that they are facing a financial crunch and are open to offers for their second-highest-paid player, starting pitcher Zack Wheeler, according to sources.

Slugger Bryce Harper is the team’s highest-paid player, but there is no indication yet that the Phillies will look to deal him off their books.

Wheeler is only one year into the five-year, $118 million deal he signed with the Phillies last winter, as Philadelphia looked to progress beyond a frustrating 81-81 season in 2019. Wheeler, 30, pitched well for the Phillies in the truncated 2020 season, posting a 2.92 ERA in 11 starts, but as with a lot of professional franchises, much has changed for the team following the onset of the global pandemic.

‘Can’t make it up’: Wheeler injured by pants

Add Zack Wheeler to the long list of weird baseball injuries.

The Phillies right-hander hurt a fingernail on his pitching hand … while putting on pants.

“Can’t make this up,” Phillies manager Joe Girardi said of Wheeler’s injury.

Wheeler’s sore nail forced Philadelphia to push his scheduled start Saturday back at least two days, to Monday, at the earliest.

The 30-year-old is off to a great start in his debut season with the Phillies, who signed Wheeler to a five-year, $118 million deal as a free agent in the offseason. Wheeler is 4-0 with a 2.47 ERA and 36 strikeouts in 51 innings over eight starts.
