Phillies purchased the contract of OF Tony Gwynn, Jr. from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Tony Gwynn Jr. went 2-for-3 with a double and walked against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Gwynn was already gaining traction as a bench candidate for the Phillies, but in light of Darin Ruf's oblique injury, he now has a pretty good chance of breaking camp with the team. He does make for a better backup center fielder than John Mayberry Jr., except since he and Ben Revere are both left-handed hitters, there's no good way to use them in tandem. Even if he does make the team, Gwynn shouldn't have any fantasy value in NL-only leagues.

Phillies signed OF Tony Gwynn Jr. to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Gwynn is a career .244/.312/.318 hitter over 1,671 big league plate appearances. Most players of his skill level don't get that amount of MLB playing time, but it pays to be named Tony Gwynn. The younger Gwynn rebounded from year's of offensive strife to slash .300/.393/.384 at Triple-A Albuquerque in 2013, though the Dodgers didn't trust the 31-year-old enough to promote him to the active roster.

Tony Gwynn Jr. is likely to be called up prior to Friday's game.

The Dodgers need a true center fielder with Matt Kemp out, and they're not ready to give Joc Pederson a shot. Gwynn is batting .288/.359/.360 with a homer and three steals at Triple-A Albuquerque this season.
