OTTERS ADD FOURTH ROUND DRAFT CHOICE
First baseman Michael Durant, the Philadelphia Phillies’ fourth round draft choice in 2005, has agreed to play for the Evansville Otters in 2011.
Durant, 24, hit .211 with 12 home runs and 37 RBIs in 113 games with Clearwater, the Phillies Class A team in the Florida State League, in 2009. He missed last season with an injury.
Philadelphia released the Oakland, Calif., resident in January.
