With the long off-season a little over a week away, I wanted to take a look back at the personnel movement the Phillies had during their 2012 season. While putting together that post (to be featured soon), I decided I needed to go back one last time and re-visit the 2011-2012 offseason now that we know where all the former Phillies ended up . . . with the exception of Ross Gload. I can't find any indication that Gload played professional baseball in 2012, so my best guess is that his bad hip finally forced him to retire.
This list was last updated way back on February 22nd, upon Raul Ibanez signing with the Yankees. At the time, we had no idea that Dontrelle Willis and Chad Qualls would be complete busts and that Jim Thome would finish out the year in Baltimore.
The starred players weren't featured on my list of transactions back on February 22nd, as there was no indication at the time these players were actually in the Phillies' 2012 plans.
Dontrelle Willis 12/15/11 - Signed as a free agent formerly with the Cincinnati Reds
*Hector Luna (12) 1/2/12 - Signed as a minor league free agent formerly with the Boston Red Sox organization
*Jeremy Horst (12) 1/25/12 - Acquired from the Cincinnati Reds for infielder Wilson Valdez
*Juan Pierre (12) 1/27/12 - Signed as a minor league free agent formerly with the Chicago White Sox
