Grady Sizemore, whose inspiring comeback with the Red Sox ended when he was designated for assignment last week and subsequently released, signed a minor league deal with the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday.

Sizemore will report to the Phillies’ Triple A team in Lehigh Valley.


After missing two full seasons with a series of ailments that required surgery, Sizemore made the Red Sox roster out of spring training. After a promising start, he eventually was batting only .216 with two home runs in 52 games, and with the team getting desperate for offense from its outfielders, he was let go.

Sizemore, 31, saw action at all three outfield spots for the Sox — 24 appearances in left, 18 in center, and 14 in right.

The Phillies (34-41) went into Tuesday in last place in the NL East.
