The Phillies added to their minor league depth on Monday signing a trio of players to minor league deals.

Kevin Slowey has joined the organization on a minor league deal.

Slowey, 30, had a 5.30 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in two starts and 15 relief appearances (37 1/3 innings) this past season with the Marlins. He will join the Phillies on a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training. He could prove to be useful rotation and bullpen depth for the Phillies.

Pitcher Sean O’Sullivan re-signed with the Phillies after posting a 4.30 ERA over 25 starts at the Triple-A level for them a year ago. He is nothing more than depth.

Likewise the Phillies brought in first baseman Chris McGuiness. The 26-year-old McGuiness hit .264/.358/.412 with nine home runs and 54 RBI over 126 games this past season with the Pirates’ Triple-A affiliate.
