Phillies Add Left-Handed Reliever Matt Strahm
The Phillies have added another arm ot their bullpen.
After adding starting pitcher Taijuan Walker on Tuesday night, they have also added veteran left-handed reliever Matt Strahm to a two-year deal worth $15 million.
Ken Rosenthal and Matt Gelb of The Athletic first reported the deal.
Strahm, 31, is coming off a solid season with the Red sox, pitching in 50 games for Boston.
Pitching for Boston, San Diego and Kansas City, he has a 3.81 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 325 strikeouts in 304 2/3 innings. In 2022, he went 4-4 with four saves and 12 holds over 50 appearances.
The addition of Strahm helps a bullpen that has lost Brad Hand, David Roberston, Zach Eflin, who pitched in the bullpen during the Phillies playoff run. He will likely fill the Brfand Hand role and be an option late in games from the left side.
Another solid addition for the Phillies who have already added Trea Turner and Walker.
