The Phillies have added a local product to the organization, sources have confirmed.

Righthander Dave Bush, a graduate of Conestoga High School and a native of Berwyn, Pa., has agreed to terms on a minor league contract. If he passes the physical that was scheduled for Sunday afternoon, he’ll join Triple A Lehigh Valley.

Bush, 31, opened the season with the Texas Rangers and was 0-1, 5.79 when he was designated for assignment after 17 games, three of them starts.

He then signed a minor league contract with the Triple A Iowa Cubs, where he was 1-2, 6.14 in five starts before opting out of his contract last week.

Since the results of the physical weren’t in, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. was unable to comment on Bush, so it was immediately unclear whether this was a move made to add depth to the organization or whether it signals that the Phillies could be close to promoting a pitcher from the IronPigs.

The big-league team is presently carrying just 11 pitchers, one less than the standard allotment.
