Pittsburgh's new catcher says he will not play for Team Canada in the World Baseball Classic because Canadian and Pirates officials don't feel comfortable with him moving from his normal position. Yanks' Granderson has broken arm New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson will be sidelined up to 10 weeks with a broken right forearm. The slugger was hit by a pitch from Toronto's J.A.

At the winter meetings last week, multiple sources confirmed that the Phillies had reached agreement with lefthander Dennys Reyes on a 1-year contract plus an option that guaranteed the veteran reliever $1.25 million. The deal, as almost all contracts are these days, was contingent on Reyes passing a physical. He was reported to be in Philadelphia on Thursday for the examination. But assistant GM Scott Proefrock confirmed yesterday that he will not be pitching for the Phillies next season after all. It doesn't take a lot of thinking to conclude that the Phillies saw something during the physical that concerned them, but teams never admit that on the grounds that they don't want to prejudice another club against being interested in the player.

Carlos Delgado homered and drove in four runs and the Mets' rebuilt bullpen barely held on for last night's 9-7 victory over host Cincinnati. The Mets won the season opener, 2-1, on a cold afternoon that showcased their offseason bullpen additions of J.J. Putz and Francisco Rodriguez. With temperatures in the low 50s last night, the offense took over and Rodriguez pitched out of a bases-loaded threat in the ninth to avoid a bullpen collapse. "It wasn't pretty, it wasn't quick, but we got a win," Delgado said.

J.C. Romero became the Phillies' first order of business after the abrupt end to their 2010 season when the team announced Tuesday that it would not exercise its $4.5 million option on the lefthanded reliever for next season. He will receive a $250,000 buyout from the Phillies. Romero, 1-0 with three saves and a 3.68 ERA in 60 appearances this season, had an inkling after the Phillies' Game 6 loss to San Francisco on Saturday night that his time in Philadelphia had run out. "My time here, I had a blast," he said.

CURTIS GRANDERSON jogged to first base after being hit on his right forearm as if it was a minor annoyance. Back at the ballpark in a brace a couple of hours later, it was clear the New York Yankees had a pretty big power problem on their hands. In his first at-bat of spring training, the slugger broke his arm when he was hit by a pitch from Toronto's J.A. Happ in the bottom of the first inning Sunday, and is expected to be out until early May. "Grandy is not a bat you say is easy to replace, but we're going to have to find a way," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

It was a no-brainer for the Phillies to offer Jayson Werth arbitration on Tuesday. The decision on Chad Durbin left room for debate, but the team decided against risking a raise it was uncomfortable paying to the righthanded reliever. The decisions don't affect the Phillies' ability to negotiate with the two free agents. What it means is they will receive compensation if Werth, a Type A free agent, signs elsewhere; and no compensation if Durbin leaves. The arbitration offer to Werth was expected - it's a win-win for the Phillies.

Shawn Green hit a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning last night and the New York Mets strengthened their hold on first place in the NL East, beating the visiting Atlanta Braves, 4-3, last night. Super sub Marlon Anderson homered off John Smoltz, and John Maine stymied Atlanta again for six innings to help the Mets win for the 10th time in 12 games. They padded their division lead to seven games over thesecond-place Phillies, who were routed by Colorado. The Mets get their final day off of the regular season today before the Phillies arrive at Shea Stadium for a three-game series beginning tomorrow night.

So, chew on this one for a moment: So Taguchi. Yeah, So Taguchi. The guy who has been buried so deep on the Phillies' bench that he might as well be the 26th man on a 25-man roster. Taguchi came up with a clutch double in the top of the ninth inning last night that helped the Phillies record an improbable 8-6 victory over the New York Mets at Shea Stadium and gave them a one-game lead over their rival in the National League East. "I just had this feeling," said closer Brad Lidge, who picked up his 22d save.

Pinch-hitter Daniel Murphy delivered a tiebreaking double in the eighth inning and the New York Mets regained first place in the East by beating the Atlanta Braves, 9-5, last night. Jose Reyes led off the game with a home run and had three hits to help the Mets move a half-game in front of the Phillies. The Mets overcame some shaky defense and improved to 1-6 this season at Turner Field, where the Phillies were 9-0. Reyes also scored three runs and drove in two. David Wright ended a 1-for-19 drought by going 2-for-5 with two RBI, and Nick Evans added a solo home run. The Mets batted around in the eighth to break a 5-5 tie, scoring four runs, three unearned.

Hoping they found their setup man on the other side of the globe, the New York Mets agreed yesterday with Japanese reliever Ryota Igarashi on a $3 million, 2-year contract. The 30-year-old righthander became the first major addition this offseason for the Mets following a 70-92 debacle that left them with a fourth-place finish in the NL East. New York thinks Igarashi can fill the role of eighth-inning setup man for All-Star closer Francisco Rodriguez. "We've had an interest in Ryota for 2 years," general manager Omar Minaya said in a statement.

SECOND BASEMAN Robinson Cano has received a "significant" offer from the Yankees, according to general manager Brian Cashman. "We've made an offer to him. We've made a significant offer to him," Cashman said Thursday, though he refused to elaborate. The GM was under the impression that managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner had said as much to reporters earlier in camp. But Steinbrenner merely disclosed that there had been a preliminary discussion with agent Scott Boras about his client.

Roy Oswalt, who was traded to the Phillies last July by the Astros, started Houston's last eight Opening Days.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - They shot for the moon, Ruben Amaro Jr. said, but in four days at the winter meetings, the Phillies will likely come away with just a lefthanded reliever. Late Wednesday night, the Phillies and Dennys Reyes finalized a one-year deal, pending a physical, with an option for 2012. Reyes, who turns 34 in April, will become the primary lefty in the Phillies' bullpen in the wake of J.C. Romero's departure. According to a baseball source, Reyes agreed to a one-year contract worth $1.1 million with a mutual option for $1.35 million in 2012.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - For many of the 31 minutes Charlie Manuel addressed reporters Tuesday, he spoke about how his offense can remain one of baseball's best, the importance of Jimmy Rollins, and how he would enjoy the challenge of possibly fixing free-agent outfielder Jeff Francoeur. He answered one question that addressed what his boss, Ruben Amaro Jr., has deemed the top priority this off-season: the bullpen. "I think he's definitely right," Manuel said, "and I agree with that.

Here are some off-season moves that could have an effect on the Phillies in the coming weeks. 1. The Angels signed lefthander Hisanori Takahashi to a two-year, $5.5 million deal. Takahashi was a pitcher who interested the Phillies for an obvious reason: He's lefthanded. When he hit the market, it was believed Takahashi was seeking a two- or three-year deal, but he ends up with a deal almost identical to the one Jose Contreras signed with the Phillies earlier this off-season.
