The Philadelphia Phillies signed 30-year-old infielder Yuniesky Betancourt to a minor league contract Monday.
Betancourt spent the last season with the Kansas City Royals, where he hit .228 with 14 doubles, one triple, seven home runs and 36 RBI in 57 games.
After the regular season, the Phillies say he batted .308 with eight doubles, seven home runs and 22 RBI in 26 games with Aguilas de Mexicali in the Mexican Winter League.
The Cuba native has hit .266 with 203 doubles, 28 triples, 67 home runs and 411 RBI in 1,019 games between the Seattle Mariners, Royals and Milwaukee Brewers.
Overnight look for passing clouds and a few flurries. Bundle up and watch for icy patches on roads and sidewalks. Lows in the upper teens and low 20s.
The cold stays with us for a few more days with highs around freezing.
Looks like another storm system moving in to start the weekend. This one will likely bring a mix of snow, sleet, and rain. Stay tuned.
