Righthander Francisco Rosario was acquired by the Phillies from Toronto in exchange for cash considerations, Assistant General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. announced today.

Rosario, 26, went 1-2 with a 6.65 ERA in 17 games (one start) for Toronto last season, his first in the major leagues. In parts of eight minor league seasons, Rosario went 20-26 with a 3.38 ERA in 148 games (84 starts). He compiled 478 strikeouts in 498.2 innings.

During spring training last month, Rosario, a native of the Dominican Republic, went 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in eight games, with nine strikeouts in nine innings.

Rosario was originally signed as an amateur free agent by Toronto on January 11, 1999. He brings the Phillies to 37 on the 40-man roster and is expected to join the team in Miami tomorrow. A move will be made to fit Rosario on the 25-man roster once he reports.
