Phillies Avoid Arb With Chad Durbin

According to Todd Zolecki of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Phillies avoided arbitration with reliever Chad Durbin by signing him at $1.635MM for ’09.  The Phils signed Durbin for $900K after the Tigers non-tendered him following the ’07 season.  He responded with a 2.87 ERA in 87.6 innings.  Ryan Howard is now the team’s lone arbitration case.
