• The Phillies continued to commit money to their core players by signing ace Aaron Nola to a four-year, $45 million extension with an option for a fifth season.

• The Marlins, who were and remain largely devoid of proven bullpen options, took a small step towards solving that problem on Tuesday, signing three-time World Series champion (and the original Opener) Sergio Romo to a one-year deal. Seeing as he doesn’t have a whole lot of proven competition for the role, it appears that Romo will have a good shot to serve as Miami’s closer this season.
