Phillies Sign Gaudin to Minor League Deal
The Phillies added another arm to their pitching staff today when they signed right-hander Chad Gaudin to a Minor League contract.
He will be in big-league camp this spring.
Gaudin, 30, went 5-2 with a 3.06 ERA in 30 appearances (12 starts) last season with the Giants. He opened the season in the bullpen, posting a 2.05 ERA in 18 relief appearances, before finishing the season in the rotation, where he went 5-1 with a 3.53 ERA before finishing his season on the disabled list with carpal tunnel syndrome.
Gaudin gives the Phillies more flexibility and versatility with his ability to pitch in both the bullpen and rotation.
He is 45-44 with a 4.44 ERA in 344 appearances (87 starts) in his big-league career.
