PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Phillies have added another September callup, bringing INF/OF Pete Orr up from AAA Lehigh Valley.

This is Orr’s third stint with the Phillies this season (see previous story).   He has appeared in 32 games for Philadelphia this season, hitting .227 (see related story).

He actually made the team’s Opening Day roster out of spring training (see related story and Pete Orr interview).

Orr played 75 games with the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, hitting .267 with 15 steals.

The Phillies continue their series with the Braves tonight.
