Phillies sign Romero

J.C. Romero was brought back to the Phillies, signing a $1.1 million deal. It was basically the same contract the Phils offered Dennys Reyes, who wound up not signing with the Phils after failing a physical.

As soon as the season ended for the Phils, their first move made was declining Romero’s option for 2011. This was to either get Romero for much cheaper or to look for a better option. The former wound up being the outcome.

Last season, Romero was 1-0 with a 3.68 ERA in 60 appearances. The big concern with Romero last season was that he walked 29 batters in 36.2 IP. He’s had control issues in the past but this was a complete low. If he wants to make a difference in the Phils pen next season, he will have to compete with other left-handers, including Antonio Bastardo, who played extremely well at the end of the season.
