The Phillies have reached a multiyear deal with Jayson Werth, although exact terms of the deal are yet unknown. SI.com is reporting that it is a 2-year, $10 million deal, with $3 million this season and $7 million in 2010.

Werth was eligible for free agency after this season. He had asked for a $4 million salary in arbitration, while the Phillies had offered $3 million. Werth made $1.7 million last season, when he produced the best season of his five-plus year career, hitting .273 with 24 home runs and 67 RBI.

Werth still must fly to Philadelphia to take a physical.

Righthander Chad Durbin signed a 1-year deal worth $1.65 million. He had asked for $1.95 million and the Phillies had offered $1.35 million.

The signing leaves only first baseman Ryan Howard from a group of arbitration-eligible players that intially numbered 10.
