After releasing Ronny Cedeno on Tuesday, CSN Philly’s Jim Salisbury reports that the Phillies have re-signed the infielder to a minor league deal and assigned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The Phillies had originally signed Cedeno in mid-January and brought him to big league camp as a non-roster invitee.
Cedeno was one of a handful of candidates to make the Phillies’ 25-man roster after Freddy Galvis was sidelined with a case of MRSA. He was competing with Reid Brignac, Andres Blanco, and Cesar Hernandez. Hernandez ultimately won and the Phillies recently traded for Jayson Nix. Cedeno, 31 and a nine-year Major League veteran, is unlikely to see playing time in the big leagues unless the Phillies suffer another rash of injuries to infielders.
