Not a bad pickup at all for the Phillies considering the garbage available and he's only there for a year so you'll probably get a decent effort from him.

Career .304 BA / 795 OPS at Citizens in 25 at bats. Not great but not bad either.

I think he has a decent year.
He might be *ok* at the plate but even that is a risk. However, he WILL be terribad in the field. He just shouldn't be in the NL. He's basically a bench/DH at this point. Who cares if he's cheap and they didn't give up much if he's awful? I can see that going over well.
