Scott Lauber reports the Phillies have signed infielder Pablo Ozuna to a minor league contract. He will join the team in Spring Training as a non-roster invitee.
Ozuna hit .260 with a home run and nine RBI in 96 at bats for the Dodgers and White Sox in 2008. His best year was 2006, when he hit .328 with 17 RBI in 189 at bats for Chicago.
Lauber hints at it — and it’s probably true — that with this signing (coupled with the signing of Marcus Giles), the Phils are bracing for an April without Chase Utley.
