Phillies Sign Matt Anderson

The Phillies have signed Matt Anderson to a minor league deal, a source tells Jerry Crasnick of ESPN (via Twitter).  Anderson was taken with the top pick in the 1997 draft by the Tigers.

Anderson, 34, appeared in 245 games for the Tigers from 1998 to 2003.  The right-hander registered a 4.89 ERA with 8.0 K/9 and 5.3 BB/9 during that span.  He last pitched in the majors in 2005 for the Rockies where he was called on in 12 games.  Anderson's last stint in affiliated baseball came in 2008 when he saw limited action with the White Sox's Triple-A affiliate.
