The clock struck 12 on the non-tender deadline, and the Phillies didn't make any new additions to the free-agent pool.

Scott Mathieson, 24, was the only non-tendered player by Philadelphia, but he was then re-signed to a Minor League contract while he rehabs from two Tommy John ligament replacement surgeries.

The Phillies also signed infielder Eric Bruntlett and right-hander Clay Condrey to one-year contracts to avoid salary arbitration. After coming over from the Astros in the five-player deal that also sent Brad Lidge to the Phillies, the 30-year-old Bruntlett appeared in 120 games, batting .217 with two home runs and 15 RBIs. Condrey, 33, went 3-4 with one save and a 3.26 ERA in 56 games during his third season in Philadelphia.

Right-handers Joe Blanton, Chad Durbin and Ryan Madson; left-hander Cole Hamels, infielders Greg Dobbs and Ryan Howard; and outfielders Shane Victorino and Jayson Werth were all eligible for arbitration but were tendered contracts. That means those players are locked up for the 2009 season at a figure to be determined either during arbitration or negotiations.

Mathieson, a 17th-round pick in the 2002 First-Year Player Draft by the Phillies, missed the entire 2008 season and pitched in just seven games in Philadelphia's farm system in 2007.
