The Phillies have dealt 26-year old lefty swinging 1B Matt Rizzotti to the Minnesota Twins for cash considerations. Rizzotti played in 139 games in AA-ball last year and he was 147 of 499 (.295 avg, .903 OPS) with 73 runs scored, 24 homers, 84 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. He played in 534 games in his five years in the minors for the Phillies and he was 544 of 1,862 (.292 avg, .870 OPS) with 259 runs scored, 66 homers, 300 RBIs and 6 stolen bases. The Phillies are loaded at 1B in the organization, so they essentially did Rizzotti a favor by dealing him to Minnesota….where he might get a chance to play in the near future.
