Ken Rosenthal has reported that the Philadelphia Phillies have reached an agreement with infielder Ronny Cedeno on a minor-league deal. The deal includes an invitation to big league camp at Spring Training.

Cedeno, primarly a shortstop with time at second base, provides depth to a Phillies team that currently has Chase Utley at the 4-hole and Jimmy Rollins at the 6 spot. Both are long time Philadelphia mainstays, but both are also considered injury prone.

In 2013, Cedeno split time between the Houston Astros and San Diego Padres. In 89 games, he batted with a .242/.287/.330 slash line, which is right about on par with his career averages.
