NEW YORK - The Philadelphia Phillies added a pair of pitchers, agreeing to a $12 million, two-year contract with reliever Mike Adams and a one-year deal with starter John Lannan.
A person familiar with each deal said Saturday that the contracts were subject to a physical. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreements were not yet final.
Adams' deal includes an option for 2015 that would become guaranteed at $6 million if he has pitched 65 games in 2014. His 2015 salary would become guaranteed at $6.5 million if he has pitched 120 games in 2013 and 2014 combined, with at least 60 in 2014.
A 34-year-old right-hander, Adams was acquired by Texas from San Diego at the 2011 trade deadline. He was 5-3 with a 3.27 ERA in 61 relief appearances for the Rangers this year, then missed the final week of the season because of numbness and tingling in his fingers, caused when a bone in the upper body pressed against a nerve. He had surgery for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and is expected to recover by spring training.
Adams has an 18-15 career record with a 2.28 ERA with Milwaukee (2004-06 ), San Diego (2008-11 ) and Texas.
Lannan, a 28-year-old left-hander, spent his first six big league seasons with the Washington Nationals. After going 10-13 with a 3.70 ERA in 2011, he received a $5 million salary after he lost in arbitration.
Washington sent him to Triple-A for most of this year, and he was 4-1 with a 4.13 ERA in six big league starts. He entered the rotation in September after the Nationals cut short the season of ace Stephen Strasburg because of a team-imposed innings limit.
