Many roster decisions looming for Phillies
By Todd Zolecki / MLB.com
Instead, the Phils are focusing on 2012.
Here is some offseason bookkeeping:
Get your options here
The Phillies have a $16 million mutual option with right-hander Roy Oswalt and a $12.5 million club option with right-hander Brad Lidge.
The options are not expected to be exercised, although the Phillies have made no official decisions.
The Phillies have until two days following the final game of the World Series to notify Oswalt of their intentions. If they decide to exercise their half of the option, Oswalt would have two more days to make his intentions known. If neither side picks up its half of the option, Oswalt receives a $2 million buyout and becomes a free agent.
The Phillies have until three days following the World Series to exercise Lidge's option. If they decline as expected, they will pay him a $1.5 million buyout.
Seven for free agency
The Phillies have seven players eligible for free agency: Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Madson, Oswalt, Lidge, Raul Ibanez, Brian Schneider and Ross Gload.
Five for arbitration
The Phillies have five players eligible for salary arbitration: left-hander Cole Hamels, outfielder Hunter Pence, right-hander Kyle Kendrick, outfielder Ben Francisco and infielder Wilson Valdez.
Right-hander Scott Mathieson is not eligible for arbitration, despite having 2 years and 142 days of service time. But even if he had qualified in service time as a Super Two, he would not have been eligible because he did not spend the required 86 days in the big leagues this season.
The Phillies outrighted infielder Pete Orr and outfielder Brandon Moss off the 40-man roster. Both Orr and Moss have elected free agency.
The Phillies also activated right-hander Jose Contreras off the 60-day disabled list, putting him on the 40-man roster, and re-signed right-hander Drew Naylor to a Minor League contract.
Fregosi Jr. joins Royals
Jim Fregosi Jr. has left the organization to become special assistant to the general manager with the Kansas City Royals.
Fregosi had been a Major League scout for the Phillies the previous three seasons. He also had served as an amateur scouting coordinator.
