According to Ken Rosenthal, the Mets have signed 31 year-old infielder Andy Phillips. Phillips spent most of his career in the Yankee organization before the Reds signed him this year. After the Reds DFA’d him, the Mets scooped him up. Rosenthal hints that new Mets exec Wayne Krivsky may have played a role.
Rosenthal says Phillips might platoon with Carlos Delgado at first base and could even see time at second. Phillips hit .315/.394/.493 in 40 Triple A games this year.
