The Phillies have signed 32-year old righty reliever Mike Koplove to a minor league contract. Koplove pitched in 41 games (0 starts) in AAA ball last season and he was 2-1 with 9 saves, a 3.46 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP. The sidearming righty last pitched in the majors in 2007 with the Cleveland Indians. Koplove has pitched in 222 games (0 starts) in his major league career and he is 15-7 with 2 saves, a 3.82 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. If nothing else Koplove will give the Phillies veteran depth at the AAA level but you shouldn’t be shocked if he makes the team out of spring training.
