The Phillies have signed 28-year old lefty reliever Cesar Jimenez to a minor league deal. Jimenez pitched in 26 games (0 starts) in Rookie+AAA-ball for the Mariners last year and he was 2-2 with a 5.24 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP. He last pitched in the majors back in 2011 with the Mariners. Jimenez has pitched in 43 games (3 starts) in his first three years in the majors and he is 1-2 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP. Jimenez will get a shot to win a job in the bullpen this spring, but he will be a longshot.
