Phillies add a pair of arms

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE

The Philadelphia Phillies have reached agreements with a pair of pitchers, John Lannan and Mike Adams.

The Philadelphia Phillies continue to make moves, signing left-handed starting pitcher John Lannan and right-handed reliever Mike Adams.

CSN Philadelphia writer Jim Salisbury discussed the signings on Saturday, writing about Lannan:

CBSSports.com reported that Lannan will get a one-year deal worth $2.5 million. He fits the bill as the low-cost, back-end rotation starter the Phils had been looking for to replace Vance Worley, who was traded to Minnesota last week.

Lannan spent most of last season in Triple-A, posting a 4.36 ERA in 148.2 innings. He started six games at the major league level, going 4-1 with a 4.13 ERA. Lannan started 33 games for the Washington Nationals in 2011, posting a 3.70 ERA while going 10-13.

Salisbury also discussed the Adams signing, stating:

The Phillies have had their eye on Adams for several years. They tried to trade for him when he was in San Diego in 2011. Now they have their man.

Adams posted a 3.27 ERA in 61 games last season after posting sub-2.00 ERAs in 2010 and 2011. The reliever had surgery in the offseason, but is expected to make a full recovery.
