PHILADELPHIA - A person familiar with the deals says the Phillies have signed veteran reliever Chad Durbin to a one-year contract.

Durbin returns to Philadelphia where he played a key role in the bullpen on the 2008 World Series championship team. The deal is pending a physical, according to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team didn't make an official announcement.

Durbin was 4-1 with a 3.10 ERA in a career-high 76 games for Atlanta last season.

The righty was 5-4 with a career-best 2.87 ERA in 71 appearances with the Phillies in '08. He left Philadelphia after the 2010 season and posted a 5.53 ERA in Cleveland in 2011 before returning to the NL with the Braves.

The 34-year-old Durbin is 42-47 with a 4.95 ERA in 440 games over 13 seasons with six teams.
