Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Phillies announced on
Tuesday that the team has agreed to a one-year, $850,000 contract with
infielder Kevin Frandsen for the 2013 season.
Frandsen, who was eligible for salary arbitration, batted .338 with two homers
and 14 RBI in 55 games after being called up by the Phillies from Triple-A
Lehigh Valley in late July. He was particularly effective against left-handed
pitching, hitting a robust .400 (26-of-65) versus southpaws.
The 30-year-old owns a .267 average with nine homers and 67 RBI over 283
career major league games and has had previous stints with San Francisco and
the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Frandsen was signed to a minor league
contract by Philadelphia last March, shortly after being released by San Diego
near the end of spring training.
