According to Todd Zolecki of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Phils are close to a multiyear contract with southpaw reliever J.C. Romero. Two years, $6MM would be one thing but I would hope they didn't go three years.
Zolecki adds that the Phillies don't believe Adam Eaton will require surgery for his shoulder issues. It still wouldn't hurt to add a starter to the group of Cole Hamels, Brett Myers, Jamie Moyer, Kyle Kendrick, and Eaton. Hamels and Kendrick may be considered injury risks.
