Veteran infielder Mike Fontenot will reportedly decide between the Phillies and Braves in the not-so-distant future.
Ken Rosenthal tweets that the Phils and their NL East rival are the last two options for Fontenot, who was released by the Giants late in spring training.
The 32-year-old second baseman - he also has played third and short in his career - batted .227/.304/.377 in 85 games for San Fran last season. His career line sits at .263/.332/.406 and while he doesn't bring much to the table in terms of stealing bases or drawing walks, he is considered a solid defensive player.
If the Phillies sign Fontenot, it certainly won't be because of what he's done against them in the past. Fontenot is a career 7-for-44 hitter (.159/.229/.250) against the Phils with a sizzling 3-for-29 resume at Citizens Bank Park. Stay tuned.
Update: Fontenot to the Phils on a minor league deal, according to Jim Bowden. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
