Benson Stays With Phillies

Rehabbing starter Kris Benson chose not to opt out of his contract with the Phillies; his window to do so has passed.  According to Todd Zolecki and Jim Salisbury, his contract was restructured yesterday to allow him to opt out on May 15th if he's not on the Phils' 40-man roster.

Benson, 33, had surgery a year ago to repair a partially torn rotator cuff.  He signed a minor league deal with the Phillies in February.

Do the Phillies have sufficient depth behind Brett Myers and Cole HamelsKyle Kendrick, Jamie Moyer, and Adam Eaton have the last three slots.  J.D. and Chad Durbin are additional options.  Would it make any difference to add Claudio Vargas to this group?
