While we await the unveiling MLB Pipeline’s Top 20’s for the N.L. East today, and perhaps break up the monotony of the Top 100 lists – hmmm, I wonder if Robles, Kieboom, and Garcia will be on this one? – we have news of two more MLFA signings:
• RHP Logan Ondrusek
• UT Myles Schroeder
Ondrusek did not pitch in 2017 and spent 2018 going from AA to AAA before he was released by the Dodgers after going 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA across 22 IP. He was picked up by the L.I. Ducks and threw 21⅓ IP with an ERA of 1.27. The 34-y.o. Texan won 21 games in relief across parts of six seasons with Cincinnati (2010-14) and Baltimore (2016), pitching 2015 in Japan (5-2 in 72G, 70⅓ IP).
Schroeder is a former Giants farmhand who has played all nine positions, but mostly at 3B and OF. He was drafted as P-CF in 2007 out of Diablo Valley (CA) JuCo but retired for three seasons before resuming his career in 2011. The switch-hitting 31-y.o. posted a .699 OPS in AAA last summer, his first full season at the level.
