SAN DIEGO — Although the Phillies almost certainly have made their biggest offseason moves, they are still looking to round out the roster with additions to the bullpen, bench, and starting pitching depth.
Don't be surprised if they turn to a familiar face or two.
General manager Matt Klentak said Wednesday that the Phillies haven't ruled out re-signing any of their own free agents. Lefty-hitting infielder Brad Miller, for instance, could help in a bench role.
"We have not closed the door on anybody," Klentak said. "Someone like Miller, he was so good down the stretch, it makes sense for him, I think, to take a crack at free agency and see what he can do. He earned that. But by no means have we closed the door on him or anyone."
Miller hit 12 homers in 118 at-bats for the Phillies last season, including seven in the season's final nine games. He also was a positive presence in the clubhouse, bringing in the bamboo plant that briefly proved to be a good-luck charm.
Left-hander Drew Smyly also might be a fit as potential rotation depth. Smyly notched a 4.45 ERA in 12 starts for the Phillies last season, including a 3.65 mark in his last five starts.
