The latest minor moves from around baseball…
- The Angels signed outfielder Dalton Pompey to a minor league contract, MLB Network’s Jon Morosi tweets. Once a top-50 prospect while coming up in the Blue Jays’ farm system, Pompey’s career was plagued by injuries, and he appeared in only 64 Major League games over parts of four seasons from 2014-18. Pompey was released from a minors contract with the Diamondbacks last summer, and he spent some time in independent baseball. Still only 28 years old, Pompey has a connection to Angels GM Perry Minasian, with Morosi noting that Minasian worked in the Jays front office during Pompey’s time in the organization.
- The Marlins signed infielder Deven Marrero to a minor league contract, and Marrero has reported to Triple-A Jacksonville. The 24th overall pick of the 2012 draft, Marrero’s last big league exposure came in a Miami uniform, as he played five games with the Marlins in 2019. He had reportedly signed with a Mexican League team in April but Marrero will now make his return to affiliated baseball. Marrero has hit .194/.246/.279 over 348 career MLB plate appearances with the Marlins, Diamondbacks, and Red Sox from 2015-19.
