The Phillies have signed free agent pitcher Pedro Martinez to a one-year deal, according to a person with direct knowledge of the transaction. An announcement is expected tomorrow.
The pitcher, 37, underwent a physical today at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia conducted by team medical staff. Though the Phillies would not officially comment tonight on the physical, several people in Martinez's camp indicated that it went well. The contract, sources say, will be a one-year deal worth about $1 million. Martinez can make another $1.5 million based on incentives.
