Outfielder Jeff Conine was acquired from Baltimore, along with cash considerations, for a player to be named later, Vice President & General Manager Pat Gillick announced today.

Conine, 40, hit .265 with nine home runs and 49 RBI in 114 games for the Orioles. Since June 24, he is hitting .301 in 51 games.

For Baltimore this season, Conine made 53 starts in left field and 47 starts at first base. He also appeared in one game at third base and one game in right field.

A 15-year major league veteran, Conine was a member of both of Florida's World Championship teams in 1997 and 2003. The Phillies are Conine's fourth team. He previously played for the Royals (1990, 1992, 1998), Marlins (1993-97, 2003-05) and Orioles (1999-2003, 2006). Conine is a career .286 hitter with 207 home runs and 1,015 RBI in 1,894 games. He collected his 1,000th career RBI on July 18.

The Phillies will make a move to accommodate Conine on the 25-man roster once he reports. He will wear #19 and bench coach Gary Varsho will now wear #30.
