MLB: Nationals Make Another Sign; now he is Maikel Franco and for Minor Leagues

Washington Nationals have signed Maikel Franco to a Minor League contract (MiLB). This is the second hiring of its kind that the organization in the capital of the United States has carried out this weekend. The players’ strike has halted negotiations to MLB and that is why he takes the opportunity to sign for MiLB.

Washington Post journalist Jesse Dougherty revealed that Maikel Franco has become a new Washington Nationals player as he was signed with a contract for Las Menores.

The Dominican saw action in 104 games for the Baltimore Orioles in the 2021 MLB season before being released. He later went to the Atlanta Braves Triple-A Branch, a situation that allowed him to be eligible to sign during the MLB break.

The organization of the capital of the United States has already carried out two signatures for Las Menores in less than two days, since on Saturday night it was reported that they ‘tied up’ Dee Strange-Gordon.

The Washington Nationals’ intention with Maikel Franco and Strange-Gordon is to secure them despite the hiatus and then prepare them for a possible promotion to MLB baseball.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from minute one and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
