Benson and Phils Close to Deal

Pitchers and catchers report to sunny Florida tomorrow, and it looks one more pitcher will be in attendance.

Kris Benson is reportedly close to signing a deal with the Phillies. As of yesterday, a deal was said to be anywhere from 24-48 hours away. So, look for Benson to be inked by the end of the day or tomorrow sometime.

Benson, who is 33, has a career record of 68-73 and an ERA of annabenson_21.jpg4.34. He didn’t pitch in 2007 due to injury, but in 2006, went 11-12 with a 4.82 ERA for the Orioles. Benson was a former No. 1 draft pick of the Pirates.

Oh and then there’s Kris’ wife, Anna Benson.  She surely will make the 2008 season a good one to watch.
