Phillies Close To Deal With Benson

Scott Lauber at Delaware Online writes about the Phillies and Kris Benson being close to a deal:

Clifton, reached Tuesday by phone at his office in Scottsdale, Ariz., said Benson may sign with the Phillies by today, just in time for the club's pitchers and catchers to hold their first workout Thursday at the Carpenter Complex. Benson, 33, had surgery last March to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder and hasn't pitched since 2006.

"Both sides are saying, 'You want this, we want this,' " Clifton said. "We're in that mode now, and we're having conversations back and forth. From years of doing this, I'd say we should know something in the next 24 to 36 hours, judging from where things are now."
