The Phillies have signed five players to minor league contracts -- outfielder Freddy Guzman, righthanders J.C. Ramirez, Drew Naylor and David Herndon and lefthander Mike Zagurski.
Guzman, 29, spent last season with the Triple A affiliates of Baltimore, Seattle, Boston and the New York Yankees. In 101 games, he hit .223 with two homers and 17 RBI but stole 45 bases in 54 attempts. A switch-hitter, he has spent parts of four seasons in the big leagues with a .211 average in 47 games.
Ramirez was acquired from the Mariners in the Cliff Lee deal.
Naylor, an Australian, has been in the Phillies system after signing last February.
