Phillies might not pursue Giancarlo Stanton

Statcast measures exit velocity, launch angle and projected distance of Giancarlo Stanton's 115.7 mph home run against the Phillies

Stanton, 28, is owed $295 million on the 13-year contract he signed in November 2014. He can opt out after '20, but if he does not, his contract expires in '27. To acquire Stanton, the Phillies would have to send the Marlins an enormous package of talent to get Miami to eat some of the contract -- and even then it might not eat that much. And if Philadelphia sends Miami a lesser package of talent, the club would have to pay most of it.

- - Klentak said the Phillies could announce more coaching staff additions later in the week.

- There are reports the Phillies signed infielder Pedro Florimon to a Minor League contract. He is a good candidate to earn a bench job, depending on what happens with the Phillies' glut of middle infielders this offseason.

- Hoskins finished fourth in the National League Rookie of the Year Award voting.
