The franchise is happy to announce the signings of catcher Drew Carlile and outfielder Teodoro Martinez, who both inked contracts to play in Texas on February 24!
Carlile hails from Bradley University, where he was a 2nd-team All-Missouri Valley Conference selection and an academic All-American in 2015. He accumulated 118 hits in a 4-year collegiate career that also included stops at Kellogg CC and the University of Missouri.
Martinez started 2015 with the Rockford Aviators before the Yankees bought his contract and assigned him to A+ ball in Tampa, FL. The 23-year-old was a part of the Texas Rangers organization from 2009 to 2014. Teo, who has also spent time with Tigres de Aragua in the VEWL, has racked up 494 hits in 7 years of professional baseball.
Welcome Drew and Teo!
