Phillies sign utility man Pete Orr

The Phillies first free agent signing isn’t a major one by any stretch of the imagination. Veteran utility infielder Pete Orr has signed with the Phillies after spending the past three seasons in the Nationals organization and having spent time with the Nats in both 2008 and 2009.

Orr is a career .260 hitter with 519 major league at-bats. He has played second, short, third and both corner outfield spots in his career and will at least provide them with depth and a veteran utility infielder.

Before joining the Nationals organization, Orr spent eight seasons in the Braves organization and played all of 2005 and 2006 in the majors with Atlanta. Orr is 31 years old.
