PHILADELPHIA -- The morning after offering arbitration to all six of their eligible players, the Phillies whittled the list down to five.

The team agreed to terms with outfielder Chris Snelling on a one-year, $450,000 contract on Thursday. Philadelphia acquired him from Tampa Bay on Nov. 20 for cash.

The 25-year-old hit a combined .246 with one home run and seven RBIs in 30 games with Washington and Oakland in 2007, missing most of the season with a left knee contusion. A left-handed hitter, Snelling has a .311 career average, with 46 home runs in 493 games.

If healthy, Snelling could provide a left-handed bench option who can play the outfield.

Ryan Howard, Brad Lidge, Ryan Madson, Jayson Werth and Eric Bruntlett were also offered arbitration by Wednesday's midnight ET deadline.
