A week ago it appeared the Phillies and left-handed reliever Dennys Reyes had agreed to a contract. But both parties hit a snag in their talks.
“We hit a snag,” said Oscar Suarez, who is Reyes’ agent. “So we just decided to push back.”
Asked if it was health-related, Suarez said, “It just didn’t work out. We’re back on the market. I don’t want to get into details why.”
This could mean a return of Chad Durbin or even J.C. Romero, whose option for 2011 was denied back in October. Amaro said he never ruled out a possible return for Romero.
