Utility man Pete Orr, who spent all of last season with the Nationals' Triple-A Syracuse affiliate, has signed with Philadelphia as a free agent.
The 31-year-old Orr played parts 2008 and 2009 with Washington, hitting .253 with a homer and 17 RBIs in 76 games. He's shown versatility in 555 major league games with Atlanta and the Nationals, playing second base, third base, shortstop, right field and left field, but has never been more than a depth player.
Orr batted .264 with 12 home runs, 45 RBIs and 25 stolen bases in 137 games with Syracuse last season, his third consecutive campaign in the Washington organization. He re-signed with the Nats last December and was cut loose as a minor league free agent after the World Series.
