Phillies, Castro close to deal

The Phillies are closing in on a one year deal with infielder Juan Castro. He'd replace Eric Bruntlett at the utility infielder on the roster, and the deal would be worth less than $1 million, plus a club option for 2011. Castro hit .277 with one home run and nine RBI in 112 at-bats with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Castro, 37, spent part of his 15 seasons in the Majors with the Dodgers, Reds, Twins and Orioles. For LA last season, he played shortstop, second base, third base and left field.

The announcement will likely come next week after Castro takes his physical.
