The Phillies have signed 33-year old righty starting pitcher Rodrigo Lopez to a minor league deal.  Lopez was rehabbing an injury in the minors last season as he pitched in 3 games (all starts) in Rookie + A-ball last and was 0-1 with a 16.20 ERA and a 2.40 WHIP.  But, Lopez has also pitched in 187 games (161 starts) in his major league career and he is 65-65 with a 4.80 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP.  Lopez will likely start the season in AAA and provide rotation depth for the Phillies if they need help in 2009 due to injury.
