Tuesday was a busy day for the Phillies. In addition to negotiating with free-agent closer Ryan Madson, they entertained Michael Cuddyer, the versatile free agent who has played his entire career in Minnesota.
Fox29 first reported Cuddyer's visit, which was confirmed by a baseball source.
Cuddyer, 32, hit .284 with 29 doubles, 20 home runs, and 70 RBIs for the Twins last season and is a career .272 hitter. He can fill in at a lot of positions, including first base.
