Rays Sign Four To Minor League Deals

The Rays have signed Juan Miranda, Matt Mangini, Jhonny Nunez, and Ricky Orta to minor league contracts, tweets Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times.

Of the four signings, the 28-year-old Miranda is the most intriguing. He spent a good chunk of 2011 in the bigs with the Diamondbacks, posting a .717 OPS in 202 plate appearances.

Honestly they all are intriguing when its the Rays.  They keep turning forgotten AAAA guys into viable major leaguers.

I thought the dbacks kept saying that miranda was their first base of the future.

As far as I can tell Juan Miranda is a human, so that might be a tough sell

that’s a little too valuable of a job for Miranda. Maybe a double-A first base, but not the majors.

You’re right. He would probably still scream when guys stepped on him. He’s got to develop a little bit more pain tolerance before he’s ready for the bigs.

Juan Miranda will not listen to your insults… he says you’re “too far off base”

A team as bad as the Mariners is unbelievably dumb for not keeping Mangini in their system. He’s had his problems but has shown flashes of brilliance and I think if given a chance in TB, he could do really well.

He’s not a 3rd baseman. Trust a Mariners fan.
