It was reported last week that the Phillies and left-hander Dennys Reyes had agreed to a one-year, $1.1 million contract with a $1.35 million option for 2011, but Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia just tweeted that the deal is off.

Not to make light of Reyes’ conditioning, but it’s entirely possible that the team could have found something they didn’t like during his physical. Either that or Ruben Amaro was like, “Oh snap, after this Cliff Lee signing, we have already committed $155 million to 18 players for 2011. Reyes has gotta go.” Anyway, Reyes is now available to sign with any team.

The 33-year-old southpaw posted a 3.35 ERA and 25/21 K/BB ratio over 38 innings with the Cardinals last season. Though left-handed batters posted a .307/409/.453 batting line in 88 plate appearances against him in 2010, he has proven to be a fine LOOGY-type during his 14-year major league career.

    Is that a Bufo marinus with a moustache under that cap, or is that really the guy’s face?

    Whewwww… He’s about a pitch and a half from a major Heart attack.

    The Phillies still need a bullpen. Unless they just bring AAA guys up?? I’d hate to pee away nice wins because there’s no pen.

      they’ve been talking up guys like Mathieson for years. Maybe he’ll finally make the big club. They may also be bringing Herndon back…he’s got a good sinker and could be useful, even if he had rough patches last year (he was a rookie, what are you gonna do?). Also there’s Drew Carpenter, Zagursky, Worley and De Fratus lurking down there and they could all see some time in the pen. I don’t expect them to sign anyone significant.

      Also don’t be surprised to see them trade Blanton or Kendrick for a reliever of some ilk, though honestly I don’t think they can get much more than a box of staples for Kendrick.

    It’s a conspiracy!!! I want to hear Larry Andersen try to differentiate between Dennys Reyes and Danys Baez, dammit!!!! We already missed the boat on Doc Halladay-Matt Holliday and JC Romero-JC Ramirez!!!
