Comcast Sportsnet has reported that Chad Durbin has ruled out the Phillies and he is picking between two teams, one likely being the Cleveland Indians.
In 2010, Chad Durbin has arguably his best season of his bullpen career with the Phillies. He had a 1.31 WHIP, 3.5 BB/9, and a 8.3 K/9 rate. Durbin was definitely a valuable member of the Phillies bullpen, but they now they plan to look David Herndon, Scott Mathieson, or Justin De Fratus to fill the void Durbin leaves.
Durbin’s departure likely stems from the fact Danys Baez was given a two-year deal as opposed to anything longer than one month. Baez will have to show his worth this year.
