Phillies roster and the many layers to outrighting Kevin Frandsen

One of the strangest developments of this long Phillies offseason was the announcement Sunday that Kevin Frandsen had been outrighted to Lehigh Valley. Frandsen elected not to accept the assignment and decided to become a free agent, forfeiting his previously guaranteed $900,000 salary. It was a pretty risky move for Frandsen to forgo nearly a million bucks after all teams passed...

Phillies Release Stutes, Frandsen Signs with Nats

It was hardly a shocking move, as Stutes pitched in just three innings this spring and struggled mightily, allowing seven earned runs on five hits while walking three. Stutes was a pleasant surprise as a rookie for the Phillies with a lively fastball out...

Phillies Nation Player Review: Kevin Frandsen

( If you had to guess who had the best batting average for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2012, who would it be? Chase Ultey? Carlos Ruiz? Placido Polanco? Maybe even Shane Victorino? All of those would be wrong. The correct answer would be journeyman infielder Kevin Frandsen. Okay, so technically this isn’t true, as Frandsen did not qualify to have the highest batting average...

Phillies, Kevin Frandsen Agree to One-Year Contract

Kevin Frandsen was signed as a minor-leaguer in 2011 and never made it to the big club, instead playing in AAA while getting hit with a 50-game suspension for taking Adderall that was not cleared before use.  In 2012 Frandsen appeared to be an after thought; despite all the Phillies' early injuries playing time went to Pete Orr and Michael Martinez.   Frandsen shined for the Lehigh...
