B West signs new agent

No, it is not Drew Rosenhaus. But Westbrook did hire Fletcher Smith, Donovan McNabb's agent, in hopes of securing a long term deal with the Birds.

Now, with Agnone (Westbrook's former agent) out of the picture and Smith as the lead negotiator, the possibility of striking a long-term deal probably exists again, although both the running back's demands and the Eagles' view of Westbrook are going to have to be altered some if the sides are to reach an agreement this off-season.

Smith, of course, has a history of closing major deals with the Eagles. Three years ago, he negotiated the 12-year, $112.9 million deal for McNabb that included a team-record $20.5 million signing bonus. A good first step for Westbrook to rekindle talks would be to sign the Eagles' tender and report to the voluntary minicamp next month at the NovaCare Complex.

Today's lineup: Jorge Alfaro returns as Phillies go for sweep of Dodgers

After getting hit by a pitch on the hand on Tuesday night, catcher Jorge Alfaro is back in the lineup for the Phillies, who are aiming for a four-game sweep of the Dodgers.

On Wednesday, Alfaro was replaced by Andrew Knapp, who had one hit in three at-bats in a rare start.

Freddy Galvis, hitless in his last two games, is 4 for 7 with a homer and three RBIs against Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda.

For the first time in the last several weeks, cleanup hitter Rhys Hoskins is not in the spotlight for the Phillies. Instead, the attention has been on Aaron Altherr, who will try to finish an impressive series in style. Altherr, who hits fifth again on Thursday, is 5 for 11 with three homers and nine RBIs in the first three games against Los Angeles.

Odubel Herrera, who batted third last night and went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts, hits sixth. His season batting average from that spot in the order is .340.
