Now, if only he can throw strikes. The Phillies have once again claimed J.C. Romero from the discount section of the Veteran Lefty Reliever aisle. A baseball source tonight confirmed a CSNPhilly.com report that Romero, a free agent, agreed to a 1-year deal. Terms were not available. The Phillies originally signed Romero, 34, to a minor league contract in 2007 after the Red Sox and the rest of the league determined that Romero walked too many batters. He arrived in Philadelphia with a renewed sense of aggressiveness and helped the Phillies to the playoffs in 2007 and, after re-signing with the team after that season, to a World Series title in 2008.

ALLENTOWN - A two-run single by Shelley Duncan capped a five-run sixth inning that carried the Columbus Clippers to a 10-5 victory over the Lehigh Valley IronPigs in an International League game Thursday night. Duncan and Anderson Hernandez each had three RBIs for the Clippers. All of the IronPigs' runs came via homers - two solo blasts by Chris Duffy, a bases-empty shot by John Mayberry, and Cody Ransom's two-run bomb. Portland 7, Reading 6 PORTLAND, Maine - Sergio Escalona issued a bases-loaded walk to Chi-Hsuan Lin that forced in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning, giving the Sea Dogs the Eastern League win. Reading led, 6-2, after 5 1/2 innings thanks in part to a two-run double by Tagg Bozied in the third and back-to-back RBI doubles by Ozzie Chavez and Mike Spidale in the fourth.

The Phillies made another trade with a familiar partner Monday. Lefthander Sergio Escalona, who was designated for assignment Saturday, was traded to the Houston Astros for minor-league second baseman Albert Cartwright . Cartwright, who turned 23 in October, played at high single-A Lancaster and double-A Corpus Christi in 2010. He had a .827 OPS at those two levels combined with 30 doubles, 14 triples and 10 home runs. But most of those numbers were put up in single A. In Corpus Christi, Cartwright had just five extra-base hits in 140 at-bats.

Earlier in the off-season, the Phillies found their replacement for J.C. Romero, who had spent four seasons as the team's primary lefthander out of the bullpen. But once their deal with Dennys Reyes fell through, they decided their next best option was, well, Romero. Two baseball sources confirmed Monday the Phillies have agreed to terms with Romero on a one-year contract. The deal, which has yet to be finalized, is pending a physical. Romero is in Puerto Rico with his family for the holidays and the physical may not take place until after Jan. 1. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

When asked about a contract agreement with lefthanded reliever Dennys Reyes on the final day of the winter meetings last week, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. would not comment. The Phillies' policy is that no deal is done until the player has signed on the dotted line. In Reyes' case, the team's caution proved prudent, because the deal did not get done. "We were not able to finish it off," Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock said Friday. The Phillies and Reyes had agreed at the winter meetings to a one-year deal worth $1.1 million, with a second-year option, that sent the veteran to the bullpen as a replacement for J.C. Romero.

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.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - The Phillies don't have a proven lefthander in the bullpen. This is a hole the size of a pitcher's mound in their blueprint for returning to the World Series next season. Unless it's a matter of less concern than how high the players wear their uniform socks. The Phillies have consistently been on both sides of the issue as baseball's winter meetings passed the midpoint yesterday. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. and manager Charlie Manuel both talked about how improving the bullpen, especially from the left side, is a priority . . . and then added that going without a lefty would hardly be a fatal flaw.
