Phillies make additions to staff

The Philadelphia Phillies inked a pair of pitchers in the last 24 hours, agreeing to terms on a two-year deal worth $12 million to reliever Mike Adams and agreeing to a one-year pact with former Washington starter John Lannan.

Adams went 5-3 with a 3.27 earned run average in 61 appearances last season with the Rangers. In eight seasons with the Brewers, Padres and Rangers, the 34-year-old right-hander is 18-15 with a 2.28 ERA in 358 appearances.

Lannan, a lefty who became the odd-man out in a stacked Nationals rotation, was signed for $2.5 million, according to 

The 27-year-old went 4-1 with a 4.13 ERA in six starts for the NL East champions last year, also going 9-11 with a 4.30 ERA in 24 starts at Triple-A Syracuse. In a six-year pro career, the Long Island native has gone 42-52 with an ERA just over four per game in 134 starts.
