The Phillies were extremely active prior to the non-waiver trade deadline, shedding Jonathan Papelbon, Cole Hamels and Jake Diekman from their roster. With about an hour to go until the 4pm deadline on Friday afternoon, the Phillies sent outfielder Ben Revere to the Toronto Blue Jays for right handed pitchers Jimmy Cordero and Alberto Tirado.
Since they share the same first name, Revere will forever be our youngest son Ben's first favorite baseball player. Our Ben is the proud owner of a Revere autograph, which my wife Jenna secured for him and Revere was also kind enough to sign an autograph for our oldest son Doug.

Cordero was promoted to Double-A New Hampshire this season and it appears as if his only baseball cards to date can be found within Blue Jays minor league team sets. Tirado had been pitching in Hi-A Dunedin. His baseball cards can be found in the 2013 Topps Pro Debut, 2014 Bowman Chrome Prospects and 2014 Topps Heritage Minors sets.
