Kendrick Signs Extension
Very surprised by this move. Only a 2 year deal (at 7 million and change) that buys out another year of arbitration, but it is the first time ever that the Phillies have shown any type of legitimate faith in Kendrick. Seemingly, if he remained in the bullpen or had a down year, he would not be in-line for any sort of raise or would merely be released or traded. He really progressed as a pitcher last year, and in my mind would present a better #5 option at this point than Fat Joe.
