PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Major League Baseball trade deadline is nine days away and according to Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., no Phillies player is safe.

“Frankly, we’re keeping our eyes and our minds open on everything,” Amaro told Angelo Cataldi and the 94WIP Morning Show, Tuesday. “We are not—we don’t have any untouchables on this club. We don’t have any necessarily expectations of what we’re going to do. What we do have is an open mind about trying to improve the club and we’ll try to do it any way we can. Some guys are more prone to move than others, but that doesn’t mean that we’re not keeping our minds open on any opportunity to make us better.”

Amaro’s comments come on the morning after a report from ESPN’s Buster Olney, which stated that the Phillies are telling teams Cole Hamels is not available. When asked if he expects the Phillies to make a big move before the July 31st deadline, Amaro hinted that a move is likely.

“I would say that we would be active,” Amaro said. “I know that we’re active right now. I would think that we would be active, but our job is not to trade just to trade, it’s to trade and to make moves to improve the club. That’s really the goal.”
