Phillies re-sign Cedeno to Minor League deal

PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies announced on Sunday that they had re-signed infielder Ronny Cedeno to a Minor League contract.

He has been assigned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Cedeno opened Spring Training last month as a non-roster invitee. The Phillies released him Tuesday, their deadline to place him on the 25-man roster or pay him a $100,000 retention bonus to play in the Minor Leagues.

The move offers the Phillies more infield depth.
