The Phillies have signed a veteran reliever
The Phillies are in desperate need of some help for the bullpen. Today, they made a small move by signing Cam Bedrosian to a minor league contract. He will report directly to Triple A Lehigh Valley. Bedrosian is a 29 year old right hander and former first-round pick, going 29th overall in 2010 to the Angels.
This season, he appeared in 15 games with the Reds and the A’s and didn’t really impress much. Bedrosian had a 5.52 ERA and a WHIP of 1.977. He was designated for assignment by both the Reds and A’s. He does have a good bloodline that ties back to the Phillies. His father, Steve Bedrosian, pitched four years for the Phillies and won the NL Cy Young Award as a member the 1987 Philadelphia Phillies.
This video certainly doesn’t instill confidence, Cam.
Will he have an impact at the major league level for the Phillies? Who knows. Certainly adding experienced arms to a depleted farm system can’t hurt.
The Phillies are back in action in just under an hour at Wrigley field against the Cubs. They have won two straight games against a struggling Cubs team and last night, Bryce Harper, Andrew McCutchen, and Rhys Hoskins combined for 12 of the team’s 15 RBI. Wheeler is on the mound looking to keep things rolling.
