According to Fox Sports, the Phillies have made their first move this offseason. Pete Orr is a 31-year old utilityman capable of playing six positions on the diamond. He’s split his 5 seasons between Atlanta and Washington, batting .260 with minute power and walk rates. He’s a capable fielder and will most definitely come up in case of emergency to Jimmy Rollins or Placido Polanco. He’s also Canadian and looks great with objects in the foreground.
This isn’t exactly the major splash people were hoping for, but it probably should have been expected. At least this means no Brian Bocock call-ups next season. Keep up with this Storystream for all Phillies free agency action.
