MLB: Santana agrees to 3-year deal with Phillies

Carlos Santana is bringing his big bat and postseason experience to the Philadelphia Phillies.

The 31-year-old first baseman became the first of the offseason’s big-name free agents to find a new home, agreeing Friday to a $60-million, three-year contract with the Philadelphia Phillies, according to two people familiar with the deal.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement is contingent on Santana passing a physical.

Philadelphia also traded shortstop Freddy Galvis to San Diego for minor league pitcher Enyel De Los Santos, and finalized two-year deals with relievers Tommy Hunter ($18-million) and Pat Neshek ($16.25 million).
