Reports: Former O’s utility man Ryan Flaherty signs with Phillies
PHILADELPHIA — Former Oriole Ryan Flaherty has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Philadelphia Phillies, according to ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick.
Flaherty, who spent his entire major-league career with Baltimore, will compete for a job during spring training in Clearwater, Florida.
The 31-year-old utility man hit just .215/.284/.355 over six seasons with the Orioles but offered the organization much-needed versatility on defense. Flaherty played all four infield spots and the two corner outfield positions. Though, he has spent a bulk of his career at second and third base.
In 2017, Flaherty played in 23 games due to a shoulder injury.
