|

Infielder Kevin Frandsen agreed to a one-year, $850,000 contract with the Phillies, Senior Vice President & General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. announced today.  The contract includes incentives and performance bonuses.  Frandsen had been eligible for salary arbitration.

In 55 games with the Phillies last season, Frandsen hit .338 with 10 doubles, 14 RBI and a .383 on-base percentage.  Against left-handed pitchers, Frandsen batted .400 (26-65) with six doubles and two triples.  The 30-year-old also appeared in 99 games with triple-A Lehigh Valley in 2012, batting .302 with 34 doubles and 33 RBI.

Signed by the Phillies as a minor league free agent prior to the 2011 season, Frandsen is a .267 career hitter in the major leagues with 39 doubles, nine home runs, 67 RBI in 283 games between the San Francisco Giants (2006-09), Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (2010) and Phillies (2012).

Left-hander Antonio Bastardo and outfielder Nate Schierholtz are the Phillies’ remaining arbitration-eligible players.
