PETE ORR RUMORS & GOSSIP

Orr Homers Late to Power Phils to 2-1 Win

Pete Orr’s eighth inning homer off of former Phil Mike Zagurski was the difference in a 2-1 win over the Pirates.

Pete Orr was removed from the 40-man roster.  In parts of two seasons in Philly, Orr played 2nd and 3rd base, batting .253/.616 over 81 games.  Signing him to a minor league deal for a third straight season would be wise because he provides depth at Triple-A and is passable in short spurts in the Majors.  Plus, he's Canadian, so that's cool.Minor league veteran catcher...
