Phillies sign Andy Gonzalez to minor league deal

USA TODAY Sports

According to a source, the Phillies have signed infielder Andy Gonzalez to a minor league deal.

The Philadelphia Phillies have agreed to terms on a minor league contract with infielder Andy Gonzalez, according to a source familiar with the negotiations. While the deal is not yet official, the only obstacle remaining is some minor contract language. He will be assigned to Double-A Reading.

Gonzalez, a fifth round pick of the White Sox in the 2001 draft, has been playing for the York Revolution of the Atlantic League this season. After being released by the White Sox during spring training, Gonzalez signed with York and has appeared in 21 games, hitting .273 with 7 RBI. He has not been with the team since May 13th, when he returned to Puerto Rico for "personal reasons".

After ascending through the White Sox' minor league system, Gonzalez made his major league debut in 2007, batting .185 with 2 HR and 11 RBI in 67 games that season. He also has seen major league action with the Indians (2008) and Marlins (2009), and owns a career slash line of .182/3 HR/13 RBI in 91 major league games. Since his last major league appearance in 2009, Gonzalez has bounced around the Marlins, Brewers, and White Sox systems, and the Phillies will be his fifth organization since 2007.
