Yankees Sign 3B Feliz to MiLB Deal

The New York Yankees signed third baseman Maiker Feliz to a minor league contract today.  The 21-year-old out of Bani, Dominican Republic was recently released by the Chicago White Sox on March 26.  He was assigned to extended spring training.

Feliz, signed with the White Sox as an international free agent on August 28, 2013, for $450,000 and spent five seasons in the organization.  In those five seasons, he had yet to play above rookie ball.

In 201 career minor league games he hit .252/.353/.327 with 21 doubles, seven triples, and six home runs while driving in 92 runs.  He walked 100 times in 706 at-bats and struck out 182 times.  He spent most of his career as a third baseman, playing 179 games at the position, but has two games at first base and one in left field.

Last season with the Great Falls Voyagers he hits.240/.310/.333 with six doubles and two home runs.  He fared much better at home hitting .315/.362/.463 versus hitting .187/.274/.240 on the road.

Feliz is said to be a defense-first third baseman with a good eye at the plate.  His bat-speed was said to be average.  He does not project to hit for much power and needs to make more consistent contact at the plate.
