Phillies, Kendrick Agree to Two-Year Pact

In a statement from the Phillies, the team has come to terms with Kyle Kendrick on an extension, making it a two year deal.

Here are the details:

Right-hander Kyle Kendrick has agreed to a two-year, $7.5 million contract with the Phillies, covering the 2012 and 2013 seasons, Assistant General Manager Scott Proefrock announced today. The contract includes performance and awards bonuses.

Kendrick, 27, went 8-6 with a 3.22 ERA in 34 games (15 starts) for the Phillies last year. He shuttled between the rotation and the bullpen all season while reaching career bests in ERA and games. In 18 games against the NL East, he went 5-2 with a 2.14 ERA.

Last month, the Phillies and Kendrick had avoided the salary-arbitration process by agreeing to a one-year contract for the 2012 season.

Originally selected by the Phillies in the seventh round of the 2003 draft, Kendrick has a career record of 43-30 with a 4.41 ERA in 127 games (98 starts) in parts of five seasons (2007-11), all with Philadelphia.
