PHILADELPHIA (94WIP) -- The Philadelphia Phillies clearly need some pitching help. The most recent name they're after? Mike Minor.

According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, the Phillies and New York Mets are "showing strong interest" in the Rangers' left-handed ace. 

Minor, 31, is off to an excellent start in 2019, with a 2.60 ERA and 2-1 record through four starts. Minor pitched a three-hit shutout on Tuesday. Minor is owed $9.5 million for 2019 and 2020, per Nightengale. 

The Phillies are also reportedly looking into Giants starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner
