Bahnsen Stays 

 

The Phillies didn't come away with any major deals at tins month's baseball meetings and they won't come away with Stan Bahnsen, a free-agent reliever they had been eyeing.

 

Bahnsen, 7-6 last year with an ERA of 307, re-signed with the Montreal Expos yesterday. Bahnsen's contract, a two-year deal, includes performance bonuses as well as an option for future years.

 

 

Bahnsen, 36, was chosen by five teams in the draft but had announced his intention to sign only with the Phillies or return to Montreal.
