Taguchi to Philly, Castillo to Florida


So Taguchi signed a one-year contract with the Phillies this weekend, bringing some versatility to the Philadelphia outfield.

The veteran, who can play all three outfield positions, hit .290 for the St. Louis Cardinals last season, leading the National League with a .406 average as a pinch hitter.

In other NL news, Venezuelan infielder Jose Castillo signed a free-agent deal with the Florida Marlins on Monday, with the terms of his contract still undisclosed.

Castillo, 26, played both second and third base for the Pittsburgh Pirates last season, batting .244 with 24 RBIs.
