Athletics Shopping Brandon Allen

Jim Thome Signs with the Phillies

40

Per MLBTR, Jim Thome signed a 1.25 million dollar deal with the Phillies. This is disheartening because Thome can still wallop the ball, putting up a 133 wRC+ in a "down" 2011, and as a result of his absolute inability to field, seemed to be a perfect match for the Rays open DH position, particularly at such an affordable price. Still, for Thome this deal seems more about returning to Philadelphia than about the money, so it's unlikely that he would've signed here anyways.
