It’s official – the Phillies announced they will add some infield depth by signing free agent infielder Mike Fontentot. He will report to extended spring training in Clearwater.
Fontenot, 31, was let go by the Giants on March 30. He’s a career .263 lifetime hitter with a .332 on-base percentage and a .406 slugging percentage.
This seems like nothing more than a depth move as Fontenot represents a slight upgrade over a guy like Pete Orr.
