Matt Strahm bolts Red Sox, signs 2-year, $15M deal with Phillies

ormer Red Sox reliever Matt Strahm is reportedly heading to Philadelphia.

Strahm is closing in on a two-year, $15 million deal with the Phillies, according to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal and ESPN’s Jeff Passan. The move would be the latest in a series of free agent additions for Dave Dombrowski, who followed up his signing of Trea Turner (11 years, $300 million) with an agreement to sign starter Taijuan Walker (4 years, $72 million) on Tuesday afternoon.

Strahm pitched pretty well in his only season in Boston. He logged a 3.83 ERA and 3.72 FIP in 44 ⅔ innings and was effective against both lefties (.229 average, .688 OPS) and righties (.221 average, .654 OPS).

Strahm probably won't catch Darin Erstand, Travis Hafner, or Rick Helling to break into the top-3 of North Dakotan baseball players in my lifetime, but he's solidly fourth.

All come up well short of Roger Maris, though bbref classifies him as a Minnesotan by birth despite growing up in ND.

slightly more than i thought he'd get, but i'm a fan of this guy.

he had supposedly wanted to start, guessing he didn't find a taker there.

I wanted him back in KC. He does seem like a good dude and I'd like to see him start again, but teams seem to like him in the pen.

RP market is very hot. Anyone with any history of success at all is getting $7-8M p.a.
