Phils sign Kris Benson

Wednesday, February 13, 2008 ·

The Phillies have signed pitcher Kris Benson to a minor-league deal.

The Phillies have come to minor-league contract agreement with free agent righthander Kris Benson.

The contract is pending a physical.

The Phillies have seen Benson throw three times this off-season: once in December and twice recently in private sessions with Phillies scout Chuck LaMar. LaMar said today Benson only is throwing at 60 to 70 percent, which makes it seem doubtful he can break camp with a spot in the Phillies rotation.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
