Things didn't go quite according to plan for Ty Wigginton during his short time in Philadelphia. Brought in to be a back-up first baseman, third baseman and right-handed bat off the bench, Wigginton was forced into starting duty as a result of Ryan Howard's lingering achilles' tendon injury and Placido Polanco's bad back. In 125 games, he hit .235 with 11 home runs and 43 RBIs. The Phillies non-tendered him in October rather than bring him back for a second year, and the Cardinals signed him to a two-year contract on Friday.
Wigginton received Phillies baseball cards in both team issued postcard sets and the 2012 Topps Update set.
