Morning Coffee: Phillies add Seanez

According to a report in the Los Angeles Times this morning, the Phillies have added right-handed reliever Rudy Seanez. That's all I have for the moment. We're in the process of confirming it right now.

In 16 major league seasons, Seanez has a 4.15 career ERA. He was released by the Dodgers late in spring training. He was 6-3 with a 3.79 ERA last season.

Stay tuned. . .
