Philadelphia Phillies Invite Eight Players to Spring Training Next Season
The Philadelphia Phillies have signed eight players to minor league contracts and extended spring training invitations for next season.
Four of the players are pitchers – Scott Elarton, Brian Sanches, Pat Misch, and Raul Valdes. The remaining four are all minor leaguers from the Phillies last season – Pete Orr, Kevin Frandsen, Tuffy Gosewich, and Scott Podsednik.
Sanches was a member of the Phillies during the 2006 and ’07 seasons. Podsednik is the only one of the group to have been an All-Star at the major league level, making the American League team back in 2005.
