Stay or Go- Which Phillies Players Will Be Back Next Season?
The MLB season is finally over. In just a few days, the MLB Offseason will officially begin, and free agents will be free to sign with whatever team they choose. The MLB Offseason tends to move a bit slower than other leagues, but it is at least when teams will start shaping their roster for the 2024 season. And after the debacle of the NLCS, the Phillies have a lot of work to do.
There was good reason to be optimistic after the 2022 World Series. The Phillies were a team that needed help, but not one that had glaring issues. But seeing them fall apart vs the Diamondbacks, there are some decision that need to be made. The bullpen imploded, the lineup went ice cold, and Aaron Nola did what he has become known for, he fell apart in a big moment. Something has to change. You don’t go from up 2-0, to eliminated, and keep things exactly the same. And Dave Dombrowski is not a man known for resting on his laurels. Even after the Phillies fell two games short of a World Series, Dave went out and got Trea Turner and a ton of bullpen arms.
There will likely be at least a couple of big changes to the 26-man roster next season. Some guys we know will be back. But there are a few guys who could be out by the start of Spring Training. Will there be Phillies mainstays that get shipped out of the city? Should they keep things mostly the same? Is Aaron Nola going to leave in free agency? Let’s run through the roster and figure out who they should keep around, and whose time with the Phillies should probably be at an end.
