According to MLBTR , the Phillies have signed first baseman and corner outfielder Tagg Bozied.

Bozied batted .288/.360/.447 while hitting five home run and driving in 18 runs in 240 plate appearances last season playing for the Pittsburgh Pirates' Triple A affiliate, the Indianapolis Indians, after starting the year in Taiwan.

The 30-year-old will likely be added as minor league depth on a minor league contract. The details of this deal haven't been known to public, but you have to assume it's not a Major League pact.
