News: Francoeur signed a minor league deal with the Phillies, which includes a spring training invite, on Thursday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.
Impact: Francoeur spent last season with the Padres organization, appearing in 10 major league games and 115 Triple-A contests. The 30-year-old found success at Triple-A El Paso, hitting .289/.320/.450 with 69 RBI and 15 home runs in 456 at-bats. However, in 24 at-bats for the Padres, he notched only two hits while striking out seven times. He'll look to use this opportunity with the Phillies to rejuvenate his once-promising career.
