The Phillies are still hunting for pitching, but rather than turning to Kyle Lohse (who still wants many millions and many years), they're shifting their attention to lefty Odalis Perez. Some of the Phils people flew down to the Dominican Republic to have Odalis pitch for them, and he was quoted as to saying- "It went good, I'm going to hear back from them Saturday or Sunday.". He made $7.75 million last season pitching for the Royals, going 8-11 with a 5.57 era. I see this as nothing more than an insurance policy should Adam Eaton not be able to hold down the 5th spot in the rotation, and if they could sign Odalis for about $2 million it may not be a bad idea. Like Chad Durbin, Odalis could serve as a swingman, taking turns in the rotation when the inevitable injury occurs. I originally thought he could be a second lefty option out of the bullpen, but his career splits versus lefties and righties are about the same (which are not all that great). His career line: 66-70, 4.47 era, and a 1.33 whip, but most of his success was early in his career. So, let's wait and see if an Oh Dallas signing is announced today on Super Sunday.
