PHILLIES SIGN VETERAN JOSH HARRISON TO MINOR LEAGUE DEAL

The Phillies made their first foray into the free agent market with the signing of veteran infielder Josh Harrison to a minor league deal. Harrison played in 36 games with the Tigers last season after eight seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates. In addition to the minor league deal, Harrison received an invitation to spring training with the big league club where he will compete for a spot on the major league roster.

Harrison could replace veteran Sean Rodriguez, who filled a utility role with the team last season. Over his nine major league seasons, Harrison has played in 878 games and has produced a line of 53-277-.273/.313/.401 and has played at second, third and short in addition to both corner outfield positions.
