Philadelphia, PA, United States (4E Sports) – The Philadelphia Phillies have boosted their bullpen with the signing of right-hander Chad Gaudin to a Minor League contract.
Gaudin, who went 5-2 with a 3.06 ERA in 30 appearances (12 starts) last season with the San Francisco Giants, will be in big league camp this spring.
Gaudin opened the season in the bullpen, posting a 2.05 ERA in 18 relief appearances, before finishing the season in the rotation.
In 12 starts, Gaudin went 5-1 with a 3.53 ERA before ending his season on the disabled list with carpal tunnel syndrome.
The 30-year-old veteran gives the Phillies more flexibility and versatility with his ability to pitch in both the bullpen and rotation.
Gaudin is 45-44 with a 4.44 ERA in 344 appearances (87 starts) in his big league career.
