Phillies agree to deal with Kevin Frandsen

Utilityman Kevin Frandsen and the Philadelphia Phillies agreed

to a one-year, $900,000 contract Monday night, avoiding

arbitration.

Frandsen made a base salary of $850,000 last year and earned

another $50,000 for reaching 250 plate appearances.

The 31-year-old Frandsen played first, second and third base for

the Phillies last year. In 119 games, he batted .234 with five

homers and 26 RBIs.
