2022 MLB Trade Deadline: Phillies get closer David Robertson from Cubs, center fielder Brandon Marsh from Angels

PHILADELPHIA– The Philadelphia Phillies acquired closer David Robertson and outfielder Brandon Marsh in separate trades with the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Angels, respectively, on Tuesday.

The Angels acquired minor league catcher Logan O’Hoppe in exchange for Marsh, while the Cubs acquired minor league pitcher Ben Brown for Robertson.

The Phillies announced that fighting aide Jeurys Familia and outfielder Odubel Herrera were designated for use on appropriate moves.

Robertson, 37, is in the midst of a resurgent year. He has given up just 23 hits in 40 innings while amassing 14 saves and a 2.23 ERA for the well-under .500 Cubs. He has completion and setup experience, allowing the Phillies to use him in either role.

Marsh is likely to take over midfield for the Phillies, who have been looking for an answer to the position for most of the season.

Marsh, 24, is hitting .226 with eight homers and 37 RBIs this season.

Robertson had previously served for the Phillies in 2019 when he had a 0-1 record and 5.40 ERA in 6 innings before injuring his elbow.

O’Hoppe, 22, is hitting .269 this season with 15 home runs and 45 RBIs at Double-A Reading.

Brown, 22, is 3-5 with a 3.08 ERA in 16 appearances (15 starts) for Class A Jersey Shore.

The 32-year-old Familia, who was signed by the Phillies during the offseason, has a 6.09 ERA in 34 innings this season. Herrera, on the other hand, is .238 this season with five homers and 21 RBIs.

The Phillies (55-47) currently hold the last wild card spot in the NL by a game over the St. Louis Cardinals.
