Phillies, Polanco very close to three-year deal

The Phillies and Placido Polanco are "very close" to agreeing on a three-year, $18 million contract with a mutual option for a fourth-year, according to Todd Zolecki.

The deal is pending a physical but it appears Polanco will make his return to Philadelphia in red pinstripes. Polanco was one of the most under rated players in Phillies' history in recent memory, and will fill in very nicely on the field and in the lineup. The Phillies are making a significant upgrade to the club with Polanco. Ruben Amaro Jr. continues to do a fantastic job as GM.
