PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Phillies have signed three-time All-Star and Cascade High School alum Grady Sizemore to a minor league contract.

Sizemore batted .216 with 10 doubles, two triples, two home runs and 15 RBIs for Boston this season. He was released by the Red Sox on June 18. The Phillies assigned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Sizemore was an All-Star with Cleveland from 2006-08 and won two Gold Gloves in 2007-08. He’s a career .266 hitter with 141 home runs, 473 RBIs and 139 stolen bases. Sizemore made it to the majors this year after injuries interrupted his career.
