The Philadelphia Phillies and right-hander Spencer Turnbull agreed to a one-year, $2-million contract, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network.

Turnbull can reportedly make an additional $2 million through incentives.

The 31-year-old returned to the mound last season after recovering from Tommy John surgery. However, he struggled immensely, amassing a 7.26 ERA with 1.68 WHIP and 24 strikeouts over 31 innings (seven starts) before being demoted to the minors.

Turnbull owns a 4.55 ERA with 3.82 FIP and 8.2 K/9 over five years as a starter with the Detroit Tigers, which included a no-hitter in May 2021.
