CSNPhilly.com's Jim Salisbury filed one last report before leaving Florida.
Salisbury says the Phillies made "significant progress" in their bid to re-sign reliever Chad Durbin. The Phillies' brass met with Durbin on Wednesday and have made an offer to retain the 33-year-old free agent. Durbin, who earned $2.13 million last season, was not offered arbitration in hopes that the Phillies could bring him back at a lesser rate. He posted a 3.80 ERA in 68 2-3 innings last season, his third with the Phils. The club also made their agreement with Dennys Reyes official Wednesday. The deal is pending a physical. Beerleaguer: I was already prepared for life without Durbin and anxious to see what the future would hold for middle relief. One can only hope they don't get carried away with a multiyear deal. [Link]
