Dylan Buell/Getty ImagesThe Miami Marlins traded slugger Justin Bour to Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for an unnamed minor league pitcher on Friday http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-paul-o_neill-jersey , according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.The 30-year-old had an excellent season for the Marlins in 2017, ripping 25 home runs and 83 RBI. After slugging 38 homers and 124 RBI in 219 games between the 2015-16 seasons, Bour exploded last year, giving the team a reliable power source in the middle of the lineup.That earned Bour a spot in the Home Run Derby and the NL All-Star Game Final Vote, though Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner was ultimately the fans' selection.This season Jacoby Ellsbury Jersey , Bour is hitting .227 with 19 homers and 54 RBI.It's a bit surprising the Marlins ultimately dealt Bour, given he's arbitration-eligible through the 2020 season.On the other hand, they had a complete fire sale last offseason, and Bour's trade is simply the latest move in the organization's overhaul. Given the Marlins have struggled throughout the year, it was expected they would continued to be sellers.Ultimately http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-don-mattingly-jersey , that made Bour expendable, and Philadelphia pounced, adding a solid power bat to the middle of its lineup. While it's a bit unclear where Bour will play, with Carlos Santana at first base and Rhys Hoskins in left field, the team added to its offensive options as it chases an NL East title and postseason berth. Josh Donaldson's tenure with the Toronto Blue Jays could be nearing its end Aroldis Chapman Jersey , with Scott Mitchell of TSN reporting Saturday that the player's locker has been cleared out within the past 24 hours.Mitchell noted he is "not sure this means anything," but it adds to speculation that has been growing about a potential trade before the August 31 deadline.Jon Heyman of Fancred reported last week the Blue Jays planned to put him on waivers and trade him once he returns to the lineup.The third baseman has only played 36 games this season and has been on the disabled list since June 1 with a calf injury. His timetable for a return has also been somewhat of a mystery since being placed on the 60-day DL.While a team spokesman said earlier this month Donaldson was "ramping up intensity in Florida over the next several days," per Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com, he still hasn't rejoined the major league club.The 32-year-old has struggled even when healthy this year, batting .234 with five home runs and 16 RBI in his limited playing time.Still Didi Gregorius Jersey , it makes sense for Toronto to see what it can get in a trade considering he is set to hit free agency and the team is well out of a playoff spot.On the other hand, a contending team can add a veteran player who is just three years removed from winning the MVP award. He earned MVP votes last season as well while posting a .944 OPS with 33 home runs.If he can get himself healthy, Donaldson could be a low-risk, high-reward addition for the home stretch of the season.
