No Surprise: Werth Offered Arbitration

The Phillies figured they will get something out of Jayson Werth this off season. With it highly unlikely they will sign the free agent right fielder, the Phils offered arbitration in hopes of getting something for him.

Werth is a Type A free agent which means the Phils will get the top pick and another of the team who signs Werth.

In other arbitration news, Chad Durbin was not offered arbitration. As Todd Zolecki said in his post, it was a move similar to what the Phils did in 2008 with Jamie Moyer. They are afraid Durbin will demand more money and with the good season he had in 2010, he could get a raise. They’ll take their chances in signing him as  free agent instead.
