Phillies re-sign Cedeno to a minor league deal

The Phillies have had their share of disappointment with players they signed prior to Spring Training.

Among those players is Ronny Cedeno.  

The Phillies announced Sunday they re-signed Cedeno to a minor league contract and he will be assigned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.  

After originally being signed to a minor league deal with a Spring Training invite in January, the 31-year-old faltered during the spring and was released on Tuesday.

Cedeno looked like a decent bet to make the Phillies' opening day roster, especially once Freddy Galvis was forced out of the lineup with MRSA.  Cedeno's competition for the job was Reid Brignac, Andres Blanco, and Cesar Hernandez, all of whom, except Hernandez, were signed this off-season.

Cedeno wrapped up the spring with a .182 average, four hits, and three RBI in 13 games.
