Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com says that he and Jayson Werth spoke through text message and that Werth has not yet made a decision.
A report came out yesterday from 97.5 the Phanatic in Philadelphia that the Phillies had offered a three-year deal to Werth that he was considering, however, there was little credibility to the story. Salisbury says that Werth told him “It’s very early. I will make an informed decision in due time.”
The three-year offer was believed to be worth $55 million with a fourth-year option. Werth’s comments shoot down that rumor to an extent, although the possibility still exists that Werth could remain with the Phillies.
