According to Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly, the Phillies have acquired left-handed OF/1B John Bowker from the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Bowker is hitting .235 with 0 home runs and 2 RBI in 17 at bats.   Is that any better than Ross Gload?  Yet, Salisbury thinks he could be the guy:

Bowker plays first base and outfield. That versatility could be attractive on the Phillies’ bench. Reserve Ross Gload plays those positions but he has been slowed by a hip injury. Gload, a left-handed hitter, has just three hits in his last 28 at-bats.

Uhh….
