Description: Phillies re-sign pitcher Jerome Williams to a one-year deal.
Insight: The contract is worth $2.5 million, but can get up to $4 million based on performance incentives. Williams posted a surprising 2.83 ERA in 57 1/3 innings of work, but should npt be expected to have repeated success, thus making him an irrelevant fantasy player.
