Minor Deals: Mattingly, Mariners, Yankees

Let's take a look at a few minor deals courtesy of Baseball America's Matt Eddy..

  • The Dodgers welcomed back outfielder Preston Mattingly after he was released by the Indians.  The son of the Dodgers skipper was the club's first-round selection (31st overall) in the 2006 draft.
  • Mariners right-hander Nolan Gallagher has voluntarily retired after injuries limited him to just 22 appearances over the last three seasons.  The 25-year-old was the M's fourth round selection in 2007.
  • The Yankees have signed 24-year-old right-hander Reinier Casanova.  The Cuban-born hurler defected following the 2009 season.

  1. Nepotism is alive and well.

      Mike Piazza was drafted in the 62nd round as a favor to his godfather, Thomas Lasorda. So yeah I guess it is.

        A 62nd round nepotism pick is a lot better than using a sandwich pick on “make up”
