The Phillies have acquired first baseman Justin Bour from the Marlins for cash and a minor-league pitcher, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

The report adds that Philadelphia claimed Bour off of waivers, and he is owed about $900,000, which is the balance of his $3.4 million salary. The Marlins could have let Bour go on via waivers, but they weren't willing to just give him away. He has two years of team control remaining, so the Phillies could trade or non-tender him.

Teams wanted to trade these players in July, but weren't able to find a match. They have one last chance to get a deal done this season.This can happen anytime before the Aug. 31 waiver deadline. In those days players will be put on waivers while every team has a chance to put a claim in on a player. If a player is claimed by a team then that player can only be traded to that roster.
