MLB.com's Todd Zolecki tweets that the Phillies have come to terms with pitcher Chad Durbin on a one-year deal that will pay the righty $2.125 million in 2010. Durbin earned $1.635 million in 2009.
Durbin worked in 59 games, all in relief, last season for Philadelphia in his second year with the club. He split four decisions, with an ERA of 4.39. His peripherals were good, except for his walk rate, as wildness led to him issuing 6.1 walks per nine innings pitched. He'll be again used out of the pen in Philadelphia.
Uggla's signing reduces the number of players whose cases are pending to 109. The Phillies will exchange figures with their three remaining arbitration eligible players today. They'll have until hearings begin to sign Joe Blanton, Carlos Ruiz and Shane Victorino. Please visit the salary arbitration page for more information.
