Kevin Frandsen could have accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A, but instead will test the free agency waters.
Matt Gelb of the Philly Inquirer reports that Frandsen refused the assignment and a $900,000 minor league deal and will likely seek a Major League position somewhere else. Frandsen has played the last two years with the Phillies and played in a career-high 119 games last season.
The 31-year old has experience at all infield positions, making him a potential asset to clubs in need of someone to fill a gap while someone is injured. He has seen 118 games at second base, the most of any position he’s played. Offensively, Frandsen hit .234/.296/.341 last season in 278 plate appearances off of the bench.
