The Philadelphia Phillies have signed 34-year old righty reliever Matt Anderson to a minor league deal. Anderson has not pitched since 2008 with the White Sox’ AAA-team. Anderson pitched in 15 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball in 2008 and he was 0-0 with a 5.60 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. He last pitched in the majors way back in 2005 with the Rockies. Anderson has pitched in 257 games (0 starts) in his seven years in the majors and he is 15-7 with 26 saves, a 5.19 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP. His big problem in the majors was control as he walked 157 batters in 256 2/3 innings in his career to date. Anderson used to have one of he best arms in the majors so this is a very low risk signing for the Phillies.
