Minor League Signings: Dumatrait, Stokes, Hacker

MLBTR has learned of three minor league signings:

  • The Tigers signed 28-year-old lefty Phil Dumatrait, formerly of the Pirates.  Dumatrait missed most of the year with a shoulder injury and was recently non-tendered when an agreement could not be reached on his minor league salary. 
  • First baseman Jason Stokes, 28 in January, also signed with the Tigers.  He missed time in recent years due to back problems, but is healthy now. 
  • Righty Eric Hacker, 27 in March, signed with the Giants.  This year at various Double and Triple A stops he compiled a 4.45 ERA, 6.2 K/9, and 3.5 BB/9 in 147.6 innings.  The Pirates acquired Hacker in May after the Yankees designated him for assignment.
