The Philadelphia Phillies and relief pitcher Matt Strahm are in agreement on a one-year, $7.5 million contract extension. In the deal, there is a $4.5 million club option for 2025, it becomes a vesting option at $7.5 million if he pitches 60 innings in 2025. Per, the Philadelphia Phillies.


Last year was Matt Strahm's first year in Philadelphia. He did everything for the Phillies. At the start of the season, Strahm was used as a starting pitcher. The second half, Matt Strahm was used as his original role, a relief pitcher.


Matt Strahm spoke on today's Phillies broadcast during the game: "Philly just fits my personality, It’s a grindy, gritty city and I feel like I match that pretty well. It’s the City of Brotherly Love. Tell me when I’m doing bad, I ain’t afraid to hear it.”


Matt Strahm is 32-years-old. He is entering his 9th season as an MLB pitcher. In 2023, Strahm appeared in 56 games, he posted a 9-5 record, 87.2 IP, 3.29 ERA, 108 K's, and a 1.015 WHIP.


The Phillies have another reliever locked up for a few years. A few years ago the Phillies bullpen was one of the worst in the entire league. The past two years the Phillies have build a very strong bullpen and are still continuing with it by locking up guys like Matt Strahm.
