PHILADELPHIA (WTXF/AP) - The Philadelphia Phillies announced they have acquired Wilson Ramos from the Tampa Bay Rays and Aaron Loup from the Toronto Blue Jays.
Ramos is batting .297 with 14 homers and 53 RBIs but is on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain. He'll upgrade an offense that has struggled during a four-game losing streak.
Ramos, who turns 31 next month, has a $10.5 million salary, and the Phillies will be responsible for the remaining $3,443,548. He has 315 plate appearances and can earn $250,000 each for 450, 475 and 500.
He is eligible for free agency after the World Series.
