The Philadelphia Phillies Have New Priority After Missing Out on Yamamoto

The Phillies have a new priority after losing Yamamoto. The Phillies, missing free agent Yoshinobu Yamamoto, are looking to extend right-hander Jack Wheeler.

   Philadelphia Phillies The Phillies, free agent starting pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamoto, say they want to re-sign right-hander Jack Wheeler. Aside from minor updates, sources said the top priority was signing Zack Wheeler to a contract extension.

   Although they were lucky enough to sign Yamamoto, it was something they always wanted to pursue. Wheeler is eligible to become a free agent after next season. Wheeler is 33 years old, so there’s no word on how long he’ll be under contract, but it looks like the team will have to give him at least three or four years to make it work and has abolished free agency. .

   The veteran played nine years in major league games. He made his major league debut with the New York Mets in 2013, pitched in 2014 and missed 2015 and 2016 due to injury. He signed with the Phillies before the 2020 COVID-19 season and helped them reach the 2022 World Series.

   He’s won double-digit games six times, including a 13-6 record last season. During his career, he went 87-63 with a 3.45 ERA. He was named to the All-Star team for 2021. And there’s no telling how much money the Phillies have left in their coffers.

   They locked up Bryce Harper, Trea Turner, Aaron Nola, Kyle Schwarber and Nick Castellanos for a long time. The team also wants to renegotiate Harperand’s contract.
