Minor Moves: Negrych, Haughian

We'll keep track of the minor transactions around the league this Sunday in this post…

  • The Nationals have signed infielder Jim Negrych to a minor league contract, according to MLB.com's Bill Ladson (Twitter link). The 27-year-old has appeared primarily at second and third base in the minors, but didn't reach Triple-A until he was 25 years old in 2010. A sixth round pick by Pittsburgh in 2006, Negrych is a career .302/.377/.402 hitter in six minor league seasons.
  • Orioles minor league lefty Nicholas Haughian asked for his release and was granted it, tweets Steve Melewski of MASNsports. The 25-year-old Haughian was Baltimore's ninth round pick in 2008, but has yet to advance past High-A Frederick. He has a career 3.76 ERA, 7.1 K/9, and 3.1 BB/9.

I wonder why neither of these guys got above Double-A (until 2010) & High-A, respectively, I’m guessing Negrych is a good hitter but not a good fielder or the Pirates had more players in Triple-A that were better than him, Haughian I don’t really know why, anyone have any info/scouting reports on either guy?
