Rumor: Phils/Giants talking  is reporting that the Phillies are talking with the Giants about a possible swap of Wes Helms for Steve Kline.

This trade would make sense.  The Giants need a third baseman and the Phillies need a left-handed reliever.  While Kline isn’t a great bullpen arm, he’s a sinkerball pitcher, who could be effective at Citizens Bank Park.

Mike Stanton has also been rumored, but the Reds have Edwin Encarnicion at third base and Ryan Freel can back him up.  There’s really no room for Wes in Cincinnati.

The Phillies pitching staff is far from set.  Look for more developments in the next couple days.
