PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 18 (UPI) --
Relief pitcher Antonio Bastardo reportedly has agreed to a $1.4 million one-year contract with the Philadelpha Phillies.
The 27-year-old left-hander was 2-5 for the Phillies last season. He is 12-9 with a 4.02 ERA in a 160-game major league career.
The Philadelphia Inquirer said the agreement avoided salary arbitration for Bastardo.
