A minor Phillies-related transaction just crossed the wire on Major League Baseball's web site. Cody Ransom, who helped fill the void when Placido Polanco and Chase Utley were sidelined with injuries in 2010, has signed a deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks. This is presumably a minor league deal.

Ransom appeared in 22 games for the Phillies last season, going 8-for-42 with two home runs, five RBI, 11 strikeouts and three walks.

His most memorable contribution came on July 9 against the Reds at Citizens Bank Park, when he hit a two-run home run off Francisco Cordero with two out in the ninth inning to tie the game. The blast capped off a six-run ninth-inning rally by the Phils, who trailed 7-1 at the beginning of the frame. They won the game in the 10th as Raul Ibanez doubled and Ryan Howard drilled a 2-1 pitch by Arthur Rhodes to left field for a walk-off home run.

The 35-year-old Ransom has played for four different teams in eight major league seasons, hitting .227/.311/.391 with nine home runs and 39 RBI in 346 plate appearances. He performed well at Triple-A Lehigh Valley in 2010, hitting .261/.333/.467 with 18 home runs and 63 RBI.
