Minor Moves: Mitch Atkins, Steve Holm

Let's keep track of the day's minor league signings right here…

  • The Nationals have signed right-hander Mitch Atkins, reports Matt Eddy of Baseball America (on Twitter). Atkins, 26, allowed ten runs in 10 2/3 innings for the Orioles last season, and has thrown a handful of big league innings in each of the last three years.
  • The Rockies have signed catcher Steve Holm, tweets Eddy. The 32-year-old had two hits and a walk in 18 plate appearances for the Twins last year, his first big league action since 2009. Eddy notes that Holm is the sixth catcher Colorado has signed to a minor league deal this offseason.

I know that it doesn’t mean he’s a great ballplayer, but I met Steve Holm at a minor league game in Syracuse last year.  He got a hit off of Strasburg and was really, really nice.
