Phillies sign Nick Castellanos
The Phillies have inked a deal with free-agent outfielder Nick Castellanos, according to multiple reports.

The Athletic's Jayson Stark reported Friday morning that the Phillies and Castellanos were nearing a potential agreement. 

The deal is reportedly for $100 million over five years. 

The addition of Castellanos means Kyle Schwarber will likely slide into the designated hitter role, though neither is gifted defensively. 

Castellanos hit .309 last year with 30 homers and 100 RBIs. He posted a career-high 136 OPS+ and also was an All-Star. 

The nine-year veteran spent most of his career in Detroit before spending the last two years in Cincinnati. He's a career .278 hitter.
