The Philadelphia Phillies have signed Fred agent relief pitcher David Robertson. He has agreed to a two-year, $23 million deal with the franchise.
He has passed his physical. The deal is done.
Robertson is expected to make $10 million in 2019. He will also make $11 million in 2020.
In 2021, there is a $12 million club option. If the Phillies decline the option, he will receive a $2 million buyout.
This will be his third MLB team. He played for the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox.
This will be a huge boost in the bullpen for the Phillies. He could be used as a setup man with Tommy Hunter in the eighth inning before getting to closer Seranthony Domínguez.
Robertson could also pitch in the seventh inning, like he did many times with the Yankees.
This past season, the 33-year-old Birmingham, Alabama native went 8-3 in 69 games, including 11 games finished. He also had a 3.23 ERA with five saves in 69 2/3 innings.
He allowed 30 runs (25 earned runs), including seven home runs on 46 hits. Robertson also has 91 strikeouts and 26 walks in 2018.
