The Philadelphia Phillies have some work to do in finalizing their pitching staff for the 2020 season. The starting rotation will include Aaron Nola, Zach Wheeler, Jake Arrieta and some combination of Nick Pivetta, Zack Eflin and Vince Velasquez.
As for the bullpen, a lot of questions remain. They have a number of guys returning from injuries and players still trying to prove themselves. In hopes of solidifying some of their pitching depth, the Phils inked veteran hurlers Drew Storen and Bud Norris to minor league deals in recent days.
They have reportedly added another veteran arm to the mix in southpaw Francisco Liriano. According to Robert Murray, who also reported the Norris deal with the Phils, Liriano’s minor league deal is for $1.5 million with $1.25 million in incentives.
