PHILADELPHIA– The Phillies have brought in a veteran infielder as minor league depth.

The team has reached an agreement with IF Trevor Plouffe.

It is believed that Plouffe will eventually report to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Plouffe, 31, split 2017 between the Oakland Athletics and Tampa Bay Rays.

In total, he hit .198 with 9 HR’s and 19 RBI’s in 100 games.

However, he is just two years removed from hitting 22 HR’s for the Minnesota Twins.

According to Jon Heyman, Plouffe’s contract could be worth up to $1.5 million if he gets called up to the Major League club.
