MLB Trade Rumors is reporting that former Chiefs utility man Pete Orr has signed a minor league contract with the Philadelphia Phillies and will be invited to spring training in February with a chance to make the major league roster.

Orr spent the past two seasons with the Chiefs and appeared in 257 games playing numerous positions on the field.  Last season he set career marks with 32 doubles, led the International League with 8 triples and had a career high 12 home runs.

With Brian Bixler and Michael Martinez expected to return to Syracuse in 2011, Orr will get another chance to prove he belongs in the major leagues – this time with the Phillies.

Good Luck Pete, we loved having you in Syracuse the past two years.
