David Hale has agreed to a one-year, $850,000 deal with the Phillies, avoiding arbitration.
Hale registered a 3.71 ERA, 1.59 WHIP, and a 14:4 K/BB across 17 innings between the Yankees and Phillies in 2020. He'll work as a reliever for Philadelphia in 2021.
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports the Phillies have acquired RHP David Hale from the New York Yankees.
Hale has pitched six innings for the Yankees this year, allowing two runs while striking out seven. He'll help in middle relief. The Phillies are sending 25-year-old Addison Russ to New York.
Yankees reliever David Hale was designated for assignment by the team on Monday.
Hale hasn't been pitching poorly and even has a save for the Yankees this season, but they have a deep bullpen and needed the roster spot. With teams around baseball looking for pitching, it's very possible that Hale gets claimed in the coming days.
David Hale earned the save in Saturday's win over the Red Sox after allowing two hits with three strikeouts and one walk over two scoreless innings.
Hale got an opportunity for a save with current closer Zack Britton taking the day off to rest. Look for the 33-year-old to return to his middle relief role for the Yankees.
David Hale was activated off the DL for his Tuesday start against the Nationals. He did not pitch well as he went five innings allowing six runs over eight hits and three walks. He also struck out four in the loss.
Hale is now 3-4 on the season with a 6.17 ERA. The Rockies have had a tough go as far as starting pitching is concerned this season. Hale will likely get a couple more starts to try and stick in the rotation for the time being.
