P.J. Phillips signed
Over on his blog, Jamie Ramsey listed several Reds Minor League free agent signings over the past several weeks. A couple of names might jump out at you.
On Dec. 15, the organization signed infielder P.J. Phillips, the younger brother of 2B Brandon Phillips. P.J. Phillips, currently assigned to the Reds new Double-A team in Pensacola, spent six years in the Angels organization but never rose beyond high Class A ball. He’s a .254/.320/.326 hitter lifetime in the Minors. He’s 26 years old.
On Dec. 22, the Reds signed Michael Griffin as a RHP and assigned him to high Class A Bakersfield. Griffin spent the previous six years in the Reds system as an outfielder, including parts of the last three seasons at Triple-A Louisville. It appears he is trying to restart his career on the mound.
