Each day MTRphilly.com will be breaking down the players on the Philadelphia Phillies 40 man roster and their non roster invitees. Today we will discuss relief pitcher Chad Durbin.
Chad Durbin spent 2012 with the Atlanta Braves where he was 4-1 with a 3.10 ERA in 76 games. Durbin had a .083 ERA against NL East opponents and was stellar from May through the rest of the year. Durbin has a career mark of 42-47 with a 4.95 ERA in 440 games.
Durbin gives the Phillies an experienced pitcher that can pitch the eighth inning or pitch multiple innings when needed. He is a leader in the bullpen and will help the younger pitchers out there mature.
