Phillies' Top Special Assignment Scout At A's-Yankees Game Tonight

Jeff Fletcher of AOL is reporting that the Phillies' top “special assignment” scout is in attendance at the A’s-Yankees game tonight.

He mentioned Mark Ellis with a question mark. Given that the Phillies are rolling out the crap-tastic duo of Juan Castro and Wilson Valdez (hitting a combined .238), I suppose that is certainly an option. And with the A’s giving Adam Rosales a fair amount of time at second base (among other positions), would it really be the worst thing in the world to deal Ellis while he has some value?
