, the once-promising outfielder netted in the Jason Bay trade, has signed a Minor League contract with the Phillies. Moss will report to Philadelphia’s Major League Spring Training as a non-roster invitee.

This officially closes the door on Moss’ disappointing Pirates career. He became a Minor League free agent earlier this month after being removed from Pittsburgh’s 40-man roster. Though Moss led the International League in RBIs last season, he hit just .228 with 13 homers in 195 total big-league games with the Pirates.

According to a release put out by the Phillies on Friday, former Pirates catcher Erik Kratz has also been invited to the team’s big-league camp.
