MLB: To the fishbowl! Former Yankee pitcher is signed by the Marlins

The Miami Marlins signed the right hand Bryan mitchell with a minor league contract. He has been assigned to Triple-A Jacksonville, where he already made his first appearance over the weekend.

Right-hander Mitchell pitched in the majors every year from 2014-18, spending the first four years with the New York Yankees before posting his most significant seasonal workload (73 innings) with the San Diego Padres in 2018

He showed some intriguing raw stuff, but overall he struggled with prospect results, driving a 5.15 / 5.20 SIERA ERA in 171 1/3 innings accumulated. He hasn’t pitched in the majors since then, bouncing between some organizations in minor league deals.

The 30-year-old signed an off-roster deal with the Philadelphia Phillies during the offseason. He spent the year with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, pitching 28 1/3 innings of 6.04 ERAs with worse-than-average strikeout and walk rates (15.7% and 12.6%, respectively).

The Phils released him a couple of weeks ago. Mitchell has worked exclusively out of the bullpen this season, but has vast experience as a starter and offers the Marlins a multi-inning relief / swing option for the high minors down the stretch.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
