Chad Billingsley Gets Guaranteed Money
Seriously though, perhaps Billingsley will be able to return to form. He's only 30 years old. He has plenty of incentive to perform well. It's a minimal risk, though, I totally thought it would be a minor league contract.
To create room for Billingsley on the 40 man roster, the Phillies designated Cesar Jimenez for assignment. The 30 year old lefty has appeared in 35 games for the Phils over the last two seasons, posting a nice 2.73 ERA and 0.7 WAR. He's nothing special, but he's sure as hell better than that no-talent ass-clown Canadian, Phillippe Aumont, who still owns a spot on the 40 man roster for some unfathomable reason.
