Geoff Jenkins Signs With Phillies

Well, we didn't really have to worry about this any more, with Fukudome signed -- this is just FYI.

Terms of contract:

Outfielder Geoff Jenkins has decided to come to the Phillies, accepting a two-year, $13 million contract with a vesting option third season that could bring the deal to $20 million.

ESPN.com reported that the option vests if Jenkins makes 925 combined plate appearances over the 2008 and 2009 seasons or 525 plate appearances in 2009. He would then earn $7.5 million in 2010. If that option doesn't trigger, the sides have a mutual option for the third year. The Phillies also agreed to a six-team, limited no-trade provision.

That's a lot of dough for a guy who's hurt as much as Jenkins is and who will be 34 next July.
