Phils announce that they have given Kyle Kendrick an extension on his contract.
Yesterday, as the Phils’ pitchers and catchers begin their first official workout at Carpenter Field in Clearwater, Florida, the Phils announced that they have extended Kyle Kendrick’s contract.
Kendrick, who had about a month ago avoided arbitration by signing a one-year contract worth $3.585 million dollars, will now receive a two-year contract worth $7.5 million dollars plus incentives.
The move shows how much the Phils value his versatility as being a starter, a spot starter, and a long man out of the bullpen. Hopefully this will also mean that they have enough money to later give Cole Hamels an extension on his one-year contract. Time will tell on that one, I guess.
Glad that you’ll be sticking around, Kyle. Do not mess up.
Oh, and welcome back Baseball! Go PHILS!!!
