Free agent reliever Blake Parker has agreed to a major league deal with the Philadelphia Phillies, according to a report from MLB insider Ken Rosenthal. (Ken Rosenthal on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Parker was designated for assignment by the Twins and ultimately released last week, making him a free agent. He pitched to a 4.21 ERA and 34 strikeouts over 36 1/3 innings this season but has a career ERA of just 3.42 and was a solid back-end option for Minnesota the last two seasons. The Phillies are desperate for pitching help across the board, and Parker should immediately step into late-inning work in Philadelphia.
