Phillies' Carlos Santana: Signs with Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana agreed to a three-year, $60 million deal with the Phillies on Friday, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

After spending his first 11 seasons as a professional within the Indians' organization, Santana will move on to a new home following this robust agreement. It was clear that Cleveland wasn't going to be able to offer Santana this kind of contract, and after the first baseman declined the club's $17.4 million qualifying offer in November, it became apparent that he would be playing for a new team come 2018. But on the surface, this move is a tad puzzling, considering the Phillies have a first baseman for the future in Rhys Hoskins. It would appear as though the top prospect will likely move to the outfield in order to make room for Santana, as he saw time in left field during 30 of his 50 appearances in the big leagues in 2017. As for Santana, the switch-hitting 31-year-old is coming off another quality season, slashing .259/.363/.455 with 23 home runs and 79 RBI in 154 games last year.

Phillies' Enyel De Los Santos: Dealt to Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Los Santos was traded to the Phillies on Friday in exchange for Freddy Galvis, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

A 6-foot-3 righty who turns 22 later this month, De Los Santos commands a plus fastball and logged 150 innings at Double-A in the Padres' system last year. His secondary pitches are inconsistent, but his command is decent enough. If he can make strides with his breaking ball and changeup, he could become a No. 3 or No. 4 starter, but the most likely scenario is that he ends up as a seventh- or eighth-inning reliever. De Los Santos notched a 3.78 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 138 strikeouts in 150 innings in the Texas League last season. He will likely head to Triple-A and could get an audition in the big-league rotation this summer.

Phillies' Nick Burdi: Popped by Phillies in Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi (elbow) was selected by the Phillies with the third pick in the Rule 5 draft Thursday.

The hard-throwing righty is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in late May. He made 75 pitches from 80 feet earlier this week, so his rehab appears to be going well. Burdi can touch triple digits with his fastball and has a wipeout slider, but his command/control was an issue even before the surgery, so it may be a year or two before he can locate well enough to reliably handle high-leverage situations. This is a nice landing spot, however, as the Phillies don't have a long-term closer entrenched, so Burdi could earn that role at some point in the coming seasons. He will need to be kept on the active roster all season, otherwise he will be exposed to waivers and offered back to the Twins. Burdi could return to game action sometime this summer.

Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Lands with Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter has agreed to a two-year deal with the Phillies worth approximately $18 million, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Tuesday was an eventful night, as it was first reported that the Phillies were landing Addison Reed, which turned out to be incorrect. They instead came to terms with Hunter, who will serve as one of their top setup men in 2018. The 31-year-old righty logged a 2.61 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 64 strikeouts in 58.2 innings for the Rays last season. He has 17 career saves, but most of those came in 2014 with the Orioles. Hector Neris would open the year as the Phillies' closer if they don't make more moves, but talks with Reed are reportedly ongoing.

Phillies' Pat Neshek: Inks deal with Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neshek signed a two-year contract with the Phillies on Monday worth around $16-17 million, Jon Heyman of reports.

Neshek is headed back to Philadelphia, where he began last season before being traded to the playoff-contending Rockies at the deadline. The sidewinder, who finished the season with a 1.59 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 69:9 K:BB across 62.1 innings between both teams, posted an especially impressive 1.12 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 45:5 K:BB over 40.1 innings during his time with the Phillies. With Hector Neris expected to open the season as the team's closer, Neshek should slide into a high-leverage setup role, though he could eventually get a chance in the ninth inning if Neris falters.
