Phils make one more trade before the end of the day

July 31, 2012

Phillies beat writer Todd Zolecki reported via Twitter that the Phillies made yet another trade.

Here is the tweet:

The Phillies traded C Tuffy Gosewisch to the Toronto Blue Jays for no compensation.

Okay, so it is far from a blockbuster trade, but I guess it is worth noting.

The 28 year-old Goeswisch has spent his entire career thus far in the minor leagues. Last year he played in 109 games for Double-A Reading, batting .247 with 13 home runs, 19 doubles and 66 RBI's.

This year he played 65 games for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, batting a dismal .192 with only 4 home runs, 13 doubles, and 20 RBI's.

His career totals in Triple-A do not hold up that much better either. Over a span of 81 games Gosewisch has a .194 batting average and 73 RBI's.

With numbers like that, it is not hard to realize why the Phillies received no compensation from Toronto.
