Peace out, Benny Fresh.
According to MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki, the Phillies have traded outfielder Ben Francisco to the Toronto Blue Jays for a minor league reliever.
Francisco was one of the nicer guys in the Phillies clubhouse, but his playing time and production were limited in an outfield that saw the emergence of John Mayberry Jr. With the addition of Laynce Nix earlier last month, Francisco’s days in Philly looked like they could be numbered. Francisco was one of the guys the Phils were likely considering non-tendering this evening along with Wilson Valdez and Kyle Kendrick.
At least we’ll have his epic pinch-hit home run against St. Louis in the 2011 postseason to remember him by.
