Transaction: Phillies select Orr's contract from AAA
Veteran utlityman Pete Orr joins the Phillies' expanded roster after spending the better part of the season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Orr, 33, hit .258/.314/.354 with four homers and 16 stolen bases in 332 plate appearances with the IronPigs, playing mostly third base with some scattered work all over the diamond. Orr's promotion reflects the "emergency only" status of Placido Polanco, who is available only as a pinch hitter. Orr, who made the Phillies' Opening Day roster the last two seasons, last appeared with the Phils on June 2 as a pinch hitter. In 42 plate appearances between Opening Day and June 2, he hit .286/.302/.429.
