The Phillies have acquired first baseman Justin Bour from the Marlins for cash and a minor-league pitcher, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

The report adds that Philadelphia claimed Bour off of waivers, and he is owed about $900,000, which is the balance of his $3.4 million salary. The Marlins could have let Bour go on via waivers, but they weren't willing to just give him away. He has two years of team control remaining, so the Phillies could trade or non-tender him.

Minnesota recently traded away Brian Dozier, Lance Lynn, Fernando Rodney as well as other key contributors. Santana expressed his frustration about the recent deals Friday following the Twins 5-3 loss to the Tigers. “It’s tough, especially when we’re only 10 games out and we have two months left,” Santana said (via the St. Paul Pioneer-Press). “Everybody’s like, ‘They gave up.’ We’re not giving up, but they did. They took our pieces away, and it’s difficult to play without our good pieces … So we just have to play with what we have and try to win games.
