Phillies Sign Contreras

Earlier today, Jayson Stark said that the Phillies backed off on John Smoltz, but were interested in Jose Contreras.  ESPN’s Enrique Rojas is reporting that the Phillies have agreed to a one-year deal with Contreras, pending a physical.

Because Smoltz wants to start, the Phillies moved onto Contreras, who will serve as a right-handed reliever and take over Clay Condrey’s role.  Contreras, 38, went 6-13 with a 4.92 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP with the Chicago White Sox and Colorado Rockies in 131.2 innings last year.
