Who says you can’t go home again?

2:28 PM: Jim Salisbury of reports on a possible reunion of old friends:

The Phillies, still looking for a left-handed bat to come off the bench, are “sniffing around” on Bobby Abreu, multiple baseball sources tell

Abreu has not played in the bigs since 2012 -- and he stunk then -- but he’s been putting up big numbers this offseason in the Venezuelan Winter League, hitting .322 with three homers, 28 RBIs and a .877 OPS in 50 games. He’s probably worth a look in camp, especially considering all it will take is a minor league invite to get him to Clearwater.
