The Phillies recently released Lou Marson, who came to camp as a non-roster invitee on a Minor League deal. Hill provides the Phillies some veteran depth.
Hill, selected by the Dodgers in the fourth round of the 2000 First-Year Player Draft, has played 331 games in the Majors over 10 seasons with four teams: the Dodgers, D-backs, Marlins and Cubs. He signed as a free agent with the Nationals early last month.
The veteran catcher has hit .206 (192-for-930) in his career.
