The Philadelphia Phillies continue to make offseason moves. Today, they signed veteran outfielder Scott Podsednik to a minor league deal with an invitation to Spring Training (via Ken Rosenthal's twitter).
After he was released by the Toronto Blue Jays from their Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas, Podsednik was signed to a minor league deal by the Phillies in May, 2011. Podsednik hit .245 in 14 games with the Phillies' Triple-A affiliate Lehigh Valley in 2011.
Podsednik last played in the major leagues as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers where he finished the 2010 season. In 39 games for Los Angeles, he hit .262 with 1 home run, 7 RBI and 5 stolen bases. The 35-year-old has hit .279 for his MLB career with 41 home runs, 300 RBI and 301 stolen bases. He led the league in stolen bases in 2004 when he stole 70 for the Milwaukee Brewers.
