The Phillies have signed Mike Fontenot to a minor league contract. My guess is that if Fontenot plays well at AAA Lehigh Valley, it will only be a short stay there. He could be brought to the majors before the end of April and he would replace utilityman Pete Orr on the roster. The Phillies have not used Orr in any of their first seven games. Fontenot would be a backup at three positions 3B, SS & 2B.
