Yankees Sign Catcher Delgan, LHP Gurka to MiLB Contracts

According to Matt Eddy of Baseball America, the New York Yankees have signed 24-year-old catcher Kellin Deglan and 28-year-old left-handed pitcher Jason Gurka to minor league contracts.

Deglan was the Texas Rangers first round pick in 2010 and spent the last seven seasons with the Rangers organization, reaching as high as Double-A Frisco.  In 567 career, minor league games he has hit .227 with 69 home runs and 275 RBIs.  Deglan was named the Rangers best defensive catcher by Baseball America after the 2011 season and appeared on their top 30-prospect lists in 2010, 2011 and 2013.  Also in 2010 he was the #11 prospect in the Northwest League.

Gurka was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the 15th round in 2008.  The southpaw has appeared in 15 major league games between 2015 and 2016 with the Colorado Rockies.  In the minors, he owns a career 18-15 record with a 3.07 ERA in 194 games, seven starts; he struck out 379 batters in 355 innings.  After the 2013 season, he was named the 30th best prospect in the Orioles system.
