Phils add IF Thurston

The Phillies bolstered their minor leagues by signing former Astros infielder Joe Thurston, according to Todd Zolecki. Houston just released the 32-year-old the other day.

He will open with Reading or Lehigh Valley and will not be considered a candidate for the big-league club.

Thurston played an 18-game stint with the Phillies in 2006 where he batted .222 (4-for-18). He’s a career utility man, nothing more.
