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.

    poor phillies fans. this yr could be truly brutal. and clueless phillies act like they are contenders. what a mess.

    recipe for disaster. one good starter in lee. nucleus of has-beens including howard and rollins. team will rely on huge question marks like brown, asche and galvis.

    phils start out with 6 on road followed by 10 gm homestand. that will be first good chance to take stock, after the first 16 gms.

    last yr had 73 wins. vegas says 76 this yr. many think that is pipe dream and good number is 70.

      Just playing computer GM here but I say if they’re “out of the race” come Mid-June start selling and sell everyone they can. If Lee and Burnett are having solid campaigns get what they can for them. If Marlon Byrd is putting up the power numbers again, get what they can for him. No point in delaying the inevitable. They started it when they traded away Pence and Victorino in 2012 but put it off by bringing in spare parts(Michael Young, Delmon Young, John Lannan,etc.) and hoping the core can play up to their contract numbers. Breaks my part to say this, but at this point the current state of the Phillies feel like an 80’s hair metal band who went from selling out stadiums worldwide to currently playing the state fairs to hundreds of people.
