The Philadelphia Phillies and Matt Strahm agreed to terms on a contract extension. He will be under contract with the Phillies until the 2025 season with a club option for 2026. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Strahm joined the Phillies in 2023 after playing one season for the Boston Red Sox. When he transferred to Philadelphia, he signed a two-year, $15 contract. He finished the 2023 season with his best win-loss record (9-5), a 3.29 ERA, and 108 strikeouts.

Strahm started his career with the Kansas City Royals, the team that selected him in the 21st round of the 2012 June Amateur Draft.

He made his Major League Baseball debut four years later and lasted two seasons for the Royals. In June 2017, Kansas City traded him, Esteury Ruiz, and Travis Wood to the San Diego Padres for Ryan Buchter, Trevor Cahill, and Brandon Maurer.

Strahm played four seasons for the Padres before joining the Red Sox on a one-year deal.

Matt Strahm will join the Phillies bullpen with Jose Alvarado, Jeff Hoffman, Seranthony Dominguez, Gregory Soto, Connor Brogdon, Dylan Covey, Yunior Marte, Luis F. Ortiz, and Orion Kerkering. Meanwhile, Zack Wheeler, Aaron Nola, Ranger Suarez, Christopher Sanchez, Spencer Turnbull, and Taijuan Walker are the projected starters for the Phillies.
