Phillies “are showing serious interest” in Chad Billingsley

billingsley getty

Jim Salisbury of reports that the Phillies “are showing serious interest” in free agent right-hander Chad Billingsley, who’s coming back from a pair of elbow surgeries.

Billingsley hasn’t pitched since April of 2013, but before his elbow gave out he posted a 3.65 ERA in 1,175 career innings and had a sub-4.00 ERA in six of his eight seasons in the majors.

Philadelphia is in full-on rebuilding mode, so taking a flier on the 30-year-old former All-Star makes some sense, particularly if the contract includes a team option for 2016.
