The Philadelphia Phillies have signed RHP Mike Koplove to a contract that includes an invitation to spring training, reports David Murphy of the Philadelphia Daily News.
Koplove has only seven major league appearances since 2005, but has pitched 254.2 innings in his career. The 32-year old uses a high-80s fastball along with a slider and change-up to get hitters out.
Murphy says Koplove is likely to end up at Triple A Lehigh Valley, but will be in Clearwater, FL when the Phillies begin spring training.
