MLB News: Righty Robertson Reaches Pact With Philadelphia

Mark Feinsand of MLB.com was first on the news that David Robertson and the Philadelphia Phillies reached agreement on a two-year, $23 Million deal with a club option for 2021.

A right-handed stopper with reverse splits, Robertson had spent the beginning of his career with the Yankees prior to returning to them once again mid-2017 after being traded by the White Sox. Robertson’s peripherals are his main selling point. He has a career ERA of 2.88 but an even more impressive career FIP of 2.81. He boasts a mediocre Walk/9 of 3.6, but a stellar K/9 of 12.0 on the dot.

Overall, Robertson is a brilliant addition to an already threatening Philadelphia bullpen. It is unclear what role exactly the Phillies will exercise him in, but wherever he goes, he’ll be an excellent weapon out of the Pen.
