PHILADELPHIA -- Outfielder Bobby Abreu has signed a minor league contract with the Philadelphia Phillies and will be invited to spring training.

The 39-year-old Abreu was a two-time All-Star with the Phillies in 2004-05. He was traded to the New York Yankees in 2006 and didn't play in the majors last year.

Abreu could fill Philadelphia's need for a left-handed hitter off the bench. He hit .322 in 50 games in the Venezuelan Winter League in 2013.

Abreu has 2,437 career hits, 287 home runs, 1,349 RBIs and 399 stolen bases over 17 seasons with Houston, the Phillies, Yankees, Los Angeles Angels and Dodgers. He ranks 22nd in baseball history in walks (1,456) and 23rd in doubles (565).
