Durbin's Deal & Jimmy's Jam

Phillies pitcher Chad Durbin agreed to a one-year contract, avoiding salary arbitration. The deal will pay Durbin $2.125 million.

In two seasons with the Phillies, Durbin has a 7-6 record with a 3.55 ERA in 130 games.

Carlos Ruiz, Shane Victorino and Joe Blanton remain as Phillies who are arbitration eligible.

-------------------

Jimmy Rollins and his girlfriend, Johari Smith, are planning to be married this coming weekend. It has been a good offseason for Phillies in this aspect, as Shane Victorino also got married. Jimmy was a member of the wedding party for Shane, so expect that Shane will be a member of Jimmy's wedding party. Other Phillies teammates, such as Ryan Howard, are expected to be in attendance for the Rollins nuptuals as well.

The wedding is scheduled to be held in the Cayman Islands, where a 5.8-magnitude earthquake struck early Tuesday, off the coast. Reports on damage or aftershocks are not available as of this writing.

Update- CBS 3 reported shortly after noon today that Jimmy Rollins has sent a message to teammates stating that he is safe and sound, after thismorning's earthquake. Rollins stated that the earthquake shook his hotel for approximately 10 seconds, forcing guests and staff to exit the building. No injuries have been reported at this time.
