Blanton signs one year Deal

Phils sign Joe Blanton.

The Phillies have agreed to a one-year contract worth $3.125 million with outfielder Shane Victorino and a one-year deal worth $5.475 million with pitcher Joe Blanton. Both had been eligible for salary arbitration.

Victorino, 28, was one of the Phillies' postseason heroes last season. He hit a grand slam home run in the National League Division Series against the Brewers and a game-tying homer in Game 4 of the NLCS against the Dodgers.

The signings leave three players eligible for arbitration: Ryan Howard, Jason Werth and Chad Durbin. Potential salary fiures for arbitration-eligible players will be exchanged today.
