January 29 Philadelphia Daily News:
“The Phillies have some interest in signing free-agent reliever Jason Grilli to a minor league contract, two sources confirmed yesterday.
No agreement has been reached yet.
The 34-year-old righthander missed all of last season with a knee injury. He’s 18-18 with a 4.74 earned run average in an 8-year career with the Marlins, White Sox, Tigers, Rockies and Rangers.
Grilli was a first-round draft choice, out of Seton Hall, of the Giants in 1997, the fourth player selected overall. His best year was 2008, when he had a 3.00 combined ERA for Detroit and Colorado.”
