Phillies Sign Former All-Star Pitcher Zambrano to Minor Leagues

May 15 (Bloomberg) -- The Philadelphia Phillies signed former All-Star pitcher Carlos Zambrano to a minor-league contract, one week after placing eight-time All-Star Roy Halladay on the disabled list.

Zambrano, a three-time All-Star with the Chicago Cubs, will report to Clearwater, Florida, for extended spring training, the Phillies announced today on their Twitter account. He has not pitched in a Major League Baseball game since last season with the Miami Marlins.

The 31-year-old right-hander, who averaged 15 wins a season for the Cubs from 2003-2008, once got in a fight with a teammate during a game, and was suspended for six games in 2009 for a tantrum after disagreeing with an umpire’s call.

Zambrano was 7-10 in 2012 with a 4.49 ERA and 95 strikeouts in 132 1/3 innings. He has 132 wins in his 12-year career.

Philadelphia is 19-21, 3 1/2 games behind the National League East division-leading Atlanta Braves. The Phillies have a team ERA of 4.05, their highest in four seasons. Jonathan Pettibone and Tyler Cloyd, two of the team’s five most recent starters, are rookies who began the year in the minor leagues.
