The Phillies reportedly had a scout Tuesday at Triple-A Memphis, which is the Cardinals' top affiliate. Cliff Lee and A.J. Burnett have been available. Lee is unlikely to be moved before Thursday's non-waiver Trade Deadline because he has struggled in two starts since returning from the disabled list. Burnett seemed like a fit for the Cardinals.
The Cardinals could revisit Lee or Burnett in August, with both expected to clear waivers.
