Phillies Agree To Deal With Lefty Reliever Dennys Reyes

The Inquirer's Matt Gelb has confirmed that the Phillies have reached a one year deal with former Cardinals reliever Dennys Reyes. He'll make $1.1 million this season with a club option for a second year. The option becomes mutual if he appears in 70 games next season.

The book on Reyes is that he's a groundball pitcher who gives up too many walks.

Phillies GM Reuben Amaro seemed resigned that Reyes was the best they were going to get out of the winter meetings this year, despite the fact that they explored some major moves.

"We've done some things where we tried to shoot for the moon," Amaro said. "We laid some groundwork on some of those. But the possibilities of that happening are remote. We've run under the mantra of, 'If you're not trying, you're not trying."
