Rizotti played in all three levels of the Phillies' minor league system last season, finishing the year with Triple-A with Lehigh Valley. H e posted a .343 average with 17 homeruns and 76 RBI's in his 125 games between the three minor league teams last season.

Rizotti, 24, was the Phillies' sixth round pick of the 2007 MLB draft and is currently not on the 40 man roster. If he is not added before the Winter meeting in December, he will become eligible for selection in the Rule 5 draft.
