Phillies and LHP Matt Strahm reach $15 million, 2-year deal

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Left-handed pitcher Matt Strahm and the Philadelphia Phillies agreed Friday to a $15 million, two-year contract, a deal that could be worth an extra $1 million if he becomes a regular in the rotation for the National League champions. The 31-year-old free agent was a reliever for the Boston Red Sox last season. He had a 3.83 ERA in 50 appearances, striking out 52 batters and walking 17 while allowing five home runs in 44 2/3 innings. Strahm has been a reliever and starter during his seven seasons in the majors with Kansas City, San Diego and Boston.
