The Phillies have signed 35-year old righty reliever Chad Durbin to a 1-year, $1.1 million dollar deal with a club option for 2014. Durbin pitched in 76 games (0 starts) for the Braves last year and he was 4-1 with 1 save, a 3.10 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. He has now pitched in 440 games (75 starts) in his first 13 years in the majors and he is 42-47 with 5 saves, a 4.95 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP. Durbin was really successful in his three previous years with the Phillies, in which he worked in 194 games (0 starts) and he was 11-7 with 3 saves, a 3.62 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP. This was a good signing for the Phillies, as they needed help for the bullpen in 2013.
