Phillies Unlikely To Sign Lefty Reliever

According to David Murphy of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Phillies aren’t likely to land a high profile left-handed reliever before the start of the season.

The Phillies continue to monitor their free agent bullpen options, but as of yesterday morning lefthanders Will Ohman and Joe Beimel were still out of the team’s price range, which league sources have estimated at right around $1 million, writes Murphy.

The Phillies don’t have much payroll flexibility.  As we mentioned last week, the club will set a franchise payroll record this season, with $132.5MM dedicated to 25-man roster salaries.
