Minor Moves: Dane Sardinha

The latest minor moves from around MLB…

  • Catcher Dane Sardinha failed a recent physical because of an elbow issue, and his minor league deal with the Orioles wasn't completed, Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com tweets.  Sardinha agreed to terms with Baltimore earlier in the month. The 32-year-old appeared in 15 games for the Phillies last year and also has big league experience with the Tigers and Reds. He has a .216/.262/.328 line in 11 minor league seasons.

  1. Every time I see him I think of his stint with the Reds, seeing him as basically a bullpen catcher for most of that. Anyway, sucks for him but I’m sure he’ll get somewhere, guys like him never see to go away, just move around.

  2. Cody Hartle 3 years ago

    I think the real question here is, how in the heck can a dude bat .216 over 11 years, and STILL BE PAID TO PLAY BALL?  Promise I could hit at least .250. Sign me up.

  3. Checked his minor league stats thinking he would have HAD to have had a good year somewhere, sometime.  Anyway, I’m sure he’s a nice guy…

  4.  He was a decent 3rd fill-in catcher for the Phillies.

  5. Lesson:  Go out to the backyard and start teaching your kid(s) how to catch a slider and a knuckleball.
