Phew. 5 years/$55 million is too much. Good thing the Braves paid $75.25 million for 5 years. Nice.
Also, it doesn’t look like the Phillies are going to get Wilton Lopez anymore. Would have been a perfect piece in the bullpen.
[Zolecki] Sources said today a trade that would have sent right-hander Wilton Lopez to Philadelphia for a pair of Minor League prospects had hit a roadblock and is unlikely to happen. Lopez, 29, had been in Philadelphia on Wednesday for a physical.
A deal had been agreed upon, pending Lopez passing his physical, but it appears both teams are going their separate ways.
Oh, Philly sports. Keep doing you.
