Phillies | Land Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez

The Philadelphia Phillies landed Cuban free-agent P Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez Friday, July 26. A league source confirmed the deal, and the contract is for six years and $48 million guaranteed with a vesting option for a seventh year at $11 million. The Phillies are believed to have outbid the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners desperate for pitching in NL-only leagues might want to squirrel away Gonzalez. He will head to the minors initially, but might be up with the team within the next month. Those in long-term keeper formats will want to snare him, too, and mixed leaguers should monitor the situation.
