The Phillies search for a left-hander for their bullpen took them to veteran Dennys Reyes. After 14 seasons in the majors, Reyes comes to the Phillies, who will be the 11th team that he’s pitched for.
Last season, Reyes was with the St. Louis Cardinals and posted a strong 3.55 ERA, but his peripheral numbers – 21 walks, 25 strikeouts in 38 innings – could be cause for concern. Reyes allowed 12 of the 41 runners that he inherited to score.
The Phillies and Reyes agreed on a one-year, $1.1 million deal.
