Towers, 30, is 5-6 with a 4.97 ERA and 60/14 K/BB ratio in 12 starts for Toronto, his home since the 2003 season. According to the report, Towers will earn $2.9 million this season – the second year of a two-year, $5.2 million deal -- and would have roughly one third of that remaining if he were traded. He will become a free agent after the season. Phillies Assistant GM Ruben Amaro Jr. was spotted Saturday and was gone the next day, leading to speculation he was there only to watch Towers.
