Reyes lands with Boston

The pitcher the Phillies originally intended to use as their primary lefthanded reliever settled for a minor-league deal with Boston on Tuesday.

Dennys Reyes agreed to terms with the Red Sox and he will make $900,000 should he be on the big-league roster. Incentives could push the deal to $1.4 million according to reports.

Reyes, of course, had agreed in principle to a one-year, $1.1 million deal with the Phillies earlier this off-season. But the two sides could not finalize the contract following Reyes' physical in Philadelphia.

That led the Phillies to re-sign J.C. Romero, who will pitch for a fifth season in Philadelphia. He will make $1.35 million in 2011 and could earn more with bonuses.
