Mike Fontenot To Philadelphia

Is Philly a destination for Mike Fontenot?

The Fightins’ are desperate for help with Chase Utley out a minimum of eight weeks recovering from right thumb surgery.

The Cubs are looking to deal, and Fontenot’s 1-yr, $1M contract should be easy to move.

Fontenot is a poor man’s Utley: left-handed bat, plays second base.

But the real bonus is Fontenot’s ability to play third base, where the Phillies also need help given Placido Polanco’s sore left elbow.

If Jim Hendry moves quickly, it’s possible he’ll get a decent return on Fontenot, which is better than anything the little guy’s contributing off the Cubs’ bench.

The Phils need a smart, short-term fix…the Cubs need to start reloading its roster. Sayonara, Mike Fontenot!
