The Phillies have signed 38-year old righty starter/reliever Jose Contreras to a 1-year deal. He pitched in 28 games (23 starts) for the Rockies and White Sox last season and he was 6-13 with a 4.92 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP. Contreras has now pitched in 191 games (175 starts) in his major league career and he is 71-63 with a 4.61 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP. Contreras will likely pitch out of the bullpen but he could start if the Phillies need him to. I like this signing for the Phillies as Contreras is pretty new to the league and his stuff is hard to pick up on the first time you see him.
