The Phillies have signed 32-year old righty starter/reliever Dave Bush to a minor league deal. Bush pitched in 17 games (3 starts) for the Rangers last year and he was 0-1 with a 5.79 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP. He has now pitched in 210 games (187 starts) in his first 8 years in the majors and he is 56-69 with a 4.70 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. Bush will get a shot to win a job in the Phillies’ bullpen next spring as a long man. This could turn out to be a good signing for the Phillies as Bush has a lot of experience at the major league level.
