MLB Free Agency: Phillies Sign Jose Contreras to two-year, $5.5 million extension

The Phillies have signed reliever Jose Contreras to a two year extension worth $5.5 million.

The Good Phight is likely conflicted on the deal, after expressing reservations over the rumor. Surely, Michael Levin is on the edge of his seat hoping this is the oldest pitcher to get a multi-year deal from the Phillies this winter.

 

“Jose was as consistent a reliever as we had last year. We were pleasantly surprised by his durability since it was his first full year in a relief role. Jose has fit in extremely well in our clubhouse and he is a quality, back-end of the bullpen pitcher who showed versatility in a variety of roles in 2010. We’re pleased to have him on board for the next couple of years.”
