CLEARWATER, Fla. -- The Phillies have signed first baseman/outfielder Brad Wilkerson to a minor-league deal without an invitation to spring training.

Wilkerson, who last played in the majors for Seattle and Toronto in 2008. He played just two games for Boston's triple-A team in 2009.

Wilkerson, 32, will go to minor-league camp for the Phillies. He's one of the last former Expos still floating around in the majors. In eight seasons, he has hit .247 with 122 career home runs. In 2002, he was runner-up for the National League Rookie of the Year voting.
