Lee Thomas joined the Phillies in 1988 to take on the role of general manager. His success as a director of player development with the St. Louis Cardinals had made Thomas a name to watch when it came to front offices in baseball. The Phillies managed to convince him to join their staff in hopes of one day turning the Phillies around in similar fashion. The Phillies were regressing at the time, and the first four seasons with Thomas at the helm of the team in the front office were not much more promising. But Thomas knew the kind of character his team had and he just needed to find a couple more ingredients to help it all mix together.
These are the players he signed during the free agent season between the 1992 and 1993 seasons.
