    -With Eflin likely done for the season, the Phillies get their fourth starter at a very reasonable pro-rated sum of $3.5M. He’s also owed just $9M next season and fills the void created by Gibson and/or Eflin leaving in free agency in November.

    -The Phillies alleviate their middle infield logjam by moving Didi; the Giants eat the remaining $5.6M (netting -$2.1M after the loss of Cobb). Didi plays out the final two months in SF and then hits the open market.

    -The Giants continue (hopefully) shedding veteran salary by jettisoning Cobb, who has pitched well this year but has been victimized by the Giants’ deplorable infield defense playing behind his extreme ground-ball tendencies. With Belt ($18.6M), Rodon ($21.5M), and Longoria ($13.0M team option likely to be declined), the Giants’ will have ample financial flexibility next season. They’ll also shed Crawford’s contract ($16.0M) following next year.

    -San Fran gets a defensively-sound young catching partner for Bart. Marchan has been on the 40-man for quite awhile but still has a remaining option year. Neither guy can handle a full workload, and with Casali likely walking in free agency, the Giants don’t have any depth behind Bart. Realmuto is of course entrenched in Philly through 2025 and O’Hoppe is among the top catching prospects in baseball, thereby making Marchan expendable. O’Hoppe also needs to be added to the 40-man in the offseason.
