Minor League Free Agent list

Jenifer Langosch/MLB.com

It doesn’t get nearly the fanfare the big-league free agent market does, but the Minor League free agent market has opened for all as well. Here is a list of players in the Pirates’ system who were granted Minor League free agency because of service time accrued:

  • C: Hector Gimenez. Erik Kratz, James Skelton, Milver Reyes
  • 1B: Bryan Myrow
  • 2B: Rodolfo Cardona, Yung Chi Chen, Jose de los Santos
  • SS: Doug Bernier
  • OF: Kevin Melillo, Mitch Jones, Jonathan Van Every
  • RHP: Tyler Yates, Jeremy Powell, Jean Machi, Derek Hankins, Dustin Molleken
  • LHP: Dana Eveland, Corey Hamman

* Note: OF Brandon Moss and RHP Steven Jackson were also granted Minor League free agency. They are not on this list above because they were able to declare earlier than these others after being removed from the 40-man roster last week.

Here, in a nice organized form, is the full list of players who became Minor League free agents over the weekend. Why might this be of interest to you? Well, remember the Pirates are now free to scour this list and negotiate with anyone in this group. You’ll find some interesting names in here, too.
