Remember Rodrigo Lopez? The pitcher who showed up on the Phillies' roster in July 2009 and went 3-1.

Well, if you do....Guess what! He's back.

The Phillies signed the 37-year old right-hander to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training according to

The report cites the website's own Jim Salisbury, saying that Lopez will get a $1 million base salary with incentives provided he makes the 25-man roster for opening day.

Lopez appeared in seven games with Philadelphia in 2009, and started in five of them. His 3-1 record with the team came with a 5.70 ERA in 30.0 innings pitched.

Lopez was a reliever for the Cubs in 2012. He pitched in only 6 1/3 innings over four games.
