Romero Agrees to Terms
The new left-hander in the Phillies bullpen is the same as the old left-hander in the Phillies bullpen.
A source confirmed a CSNPhilly.com report that J.C. Romero has agreed to terms on a contract with the Phillies. The deal is pending a physical.
Terms were unknown, but it seems safe to say it falls somewhere in the $1 to $2 million range. The Phillies had agreed earlier this month to a $1.1 million deal with Dennys Reyes before the deal fell through.
I’m not sure how this impacts Chad Durbin‘s chances of rejoining the team, although I’ve got to think it makes things more difficult. But if the Phillies trade Joe Blanton to free up salary, the Phillies could have some wiggle room to bring him back, if the Phillies feel they still need another veteran in the pen.
