34-year old lefty reliever Raul Valdes has been electric for the Phillies so far this year. He has pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.55 WHIP. He has only given up 3 hits in his first 7 1/3 innings for the Phillies while whiffing 10 batters and walking only 1. Valdes has now pitched in 57 games (1 start) in his first three years in the majors and he is 5-4 with 1 save, a 4.15 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. The Phillies hope that Valdes keeps up the good work, that way he can team with Antonio Bastardo to give them a nasty pair of lefties out of the pen.
