Morning news: Phillies add Abad, sport new shirts

Here are your morning news bits …

Abad on board: The Phillies over the weekend signed left-handed reliever Fernando Abad to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training. Abad put up a 3.30 ERA with 7.63 K/9 and 2.89 BB/9 in 43.2 innings last year with the Red Sox. He’ll be in the mix with Adam Morgan, Hoby Milner and Zac Curtis for a lefty spot in the bullpen.

There’s also this:

The shirts also say “VAM” on the sleeve. “VAM” is for “Value at the margins.”

Oh, also Justin Timberlake apparently recorded a message for the Phillies as part of Gabe Kapler’s Sunday night “Be Bold” team party.

Makes sense: Timberlake’s uncle is the general manager of the Clearwater Threshers; also, Timberlake loves Clearwater.

Camp Kapler will not disappoint.
