The Phillies have signed 30-year old righty swinging 2B Marcus Giles to a minor league contract. He will provide the team with a good insurance policy in case Chase Utley is not ready to go in 2009 when the season starts. Giles did not play in the major league last season. He has played in 792 games in his major league career in which he is 813 for 2,934 (.277 avg, .782 OPS) with 468 runs scored, 76 homers, 333 RBIs and 70 stolen bases.
