If you can’t beat them, have them join you. After signing Phillie killer Brian Schneider in the beginning of the offseason, the Phillies sign Brad Wilkerson to a minor league deal. In eight seasons, he has hit .247 with 122 career home runs. He hasn’t played in the majors since 2008.
Wilkerson is an interesting signing. He’s another power bar that most likely won’t make the opening day roster. The 32-year old outfielder is a lefty as well. I’m not impressed by the signing but I’m also not shaken by it. Dumpster diving by Ruben Amaro again at its finest.
