Phils Sign Wilkerson to Minor League Deal

The Phillies confirmed a FOX Sports report they have signed outfielder Brad Wilkerson to a Minor League contract.

He will not participate in big-league camp.

Wilkerson played two games last season for Pawtucket, the Triple A affiliate of the Red Sox. He last played in the majors in 2008, when he hit a combined .220 with four home runs and 28 RBIs in 309 at-bats for Seattle and Toronto. He is a career .247 hitter with 122 homers and 399 RBIs in 972 games in eight seasons for the Expos, Nationals, Rangers, Mariners and Blue Jays.

The Fightins also announced its three contest winners for my new book. Great contest, guys. I appreciate it! And if you didn’t win, hey, there’s always the bookstore.

The Zo Zone is on Facebook and Twitter. His book “The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly: Philadelphia Phillies” is available online, and will be in Delaware Valley bookstores SOON!

I picked up 2 copies last week at Barnes and Noble in University City, so they are starting to trickle into stores…

I wonder if Andy Tracy had anything to do with Brad Wilkerson coming out of retirement and signing a minor league deal with the Phillies? They were teammates from 1999-2001 coming up through the Expos organization. Another left-handed hitter with power should look good with the Ironpigs because the ball carries well to right field at Coca-Cola Park.

I wonder why Wilkerson isn’t participating in Spring Training.
