PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies have acquired Astros All-Star right fielder Hunter Pence, two sources said Friday.

A deal could be announced before the end of the night.

Pence was pulled from the Astros' game in Milwaukee in the bottom of the fifth inning. He had taken the field for warmups before Jason Michaels was sent out to replace him. Pence could be seen hugging teammates in the dugout before heading to the clubhouse.

Hunter Pence, a two-time Major League Baseball all-star, played for the Schenectady (now Amsterdam) Mohawks of the New York Collegiate Baseball League in the summer of 2002. The Mohawks amassed a 33-14 overall record and advanced to the NYCBL Championship Series against the Hornell Dodgers. Pence, bound for UT-Arlington in the fall of 2002, appeared in 30 games and started 29. He batted .316 with one home run and 13 RBI. He cracked 36 hits, scored 13 runs and stole six bases.

The Fort Worth, Texas, native was selected by the Houston Astros in the second round (64th overall) of the 2004 Major League Baseball draft. He remains the highest-drafted Mohawk in the over 25-year history of the franchise.
