08:06 AM ET 05.24 | A weekend report has the Phillies scouting a pair of White Sox pitchers. According to the story, a "top Philadelphia scout" has been shadowing Chicago and is concentrating on closer Bobby Jenks in case the Sox fall out of contention in the upcoming weeks. It went on the say that the Phils are also interested in righthander J.J. Putz. It would make sense for the Phillies to be exploring all options since closer Brad Lidge is back on the disabled list with right elbow inflammation following offseason surgery. Any trade interest could evaporate if Lidge and setup reliever Ryan Madson (broken right big toe) are believed to be on track to return at full strength.
