Diamondbacks acquired INF Ronny Cedeno from the Phillies in exchange for C Raywilly Gomez.

Phillies signed INF Ronny Cedeno to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Cedeno struggled to attract a healthy market this winter in free agency after hitting .242/.287/.330 in 288 plate appearances last season between the Astros and Padres. The 30-year-old can play all around the infield but is doubtful to make the Phillies' Opening Day roster.

Ronny Cedeno left Monday's game against the Diamondbacks after he was hit in the helmet by a Heath Bell fastball in the bottom of the seventh inning.
