How much would I like some real news?
#BlueJays have signed OF Ricardo Nanita to a Minor League deal with an invite to Spring Training.— Gregor Chisholm (@gregorMLB) January 20, 2014
Ricardo is 32, he's played in the Jays minor leagues since 2010, before that he played in Mexico. He was part of the Dominican Republic's WBC team last year. He's played in 1046 minor league games, but hasn't had a moment in the majors. Last year he hit .258/.312/.376 with 6 home runs, splitting time between New Hampshire and Buffalo. He's pretty good defensively.
I'm excited, how about you?
Really, all teams make this kind of moves, at this time of year. Filling out minor league rosters is something that all teams have to do. And keeping someone in the system isn't a bad idea.
