Bastardo requested $2.5 million and the Phillies countered at $1.675 million, so they’re settling slightly below the midpoint.
Bastardo’s season ended in early August when he received a 50-game suspension for Biogenesis involvement. He threw 43 innings with a 2.32 ERA and 47/21 K/BB ratio before the suspension and has a 3.12 ERA in 153 innings for the Phillies since the beginning of 2011.
