Russ Canzler lands minor league contract with Phillies
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Phillies have signed well-traveled third baseman/outfielder Russ Canzler to a minor league deal. He had been released last week by the Yankees.

The 28-year-old Canzler, who has a reputation as a good-hit, no-field prospect, didn't hit all that well this season for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre. He managed a stat line of .263/.332/.389.

Hip ailment sidelines Russ Canzler on Friday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Yankees third baseman Russ Canzler was scratched from the lineup Friday with a stiff hip. The non-roster invitee is batting .158 this spring. The injury will further weaken his already poor chances of landing a roster spot.

Russ Canzler seeking to earn roster spot at third base
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Poor defense has kept Russ Canzler out of the major leagues for nearly his entire career. He was working at third base with Yankees infield coach Mick Kelleher on Saturday. Proving himself worthy at that position could help him make the team.

The 27-year-old Canzler has not earned an MLB at-bat since 2012 with Cleveland. But he has averaged 20 home runs and 76 RBI in his last three minor leagues seasons combined.
