Berroa Signed By Diamondbacks

Infielder has contract purchased
 
(Bridgeport, Conn. – July 24, 2011) – Bridgeport Bluefish team officials today announced that infielder Angel Berroa has had his contract purchased by the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. The former Major Leaguer will report to Triple-A Reno of the Pacific Coast League.
 
“We are glad to see Angel make this important stride in his effort to get back to the big leagues,” says Bluefish manager Willie Upshaw. “He was a key piece to this club and we hope he succeeds at the next level.”
 
Berroa appeared in 64 games for the Bluefish in 2011, posting a .263 batting average with six home runs and 33 RBI in 228 at-bats. Last year, he spent time with Triple-A Fresno of the San Francisco Giants organization. He played 26 games, recording a .205 batting average.

The 33-year-old has enjoyed nine seasons in the big leagues, with his first appearance coming in 2001 as a member of the Kansas City Royals. He made a big splash during his first full season in the Majors in 2003, batting .287 with 17 home runs, 28 doubles, 73 RBI, 91 runs scored, and 21 stolen bases to take home the AL Rookie of the Year award. He would spend the following four seasons in a Royals uniform before being traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Juan Rivera in 2008. The next year would be his final stop in the Major Leagues, making appearances with both the New York Mets and New York Yankees. In 746 career Major League games, the infielder has recorded a .258 batting average with 46 home runs, 254 RBI, 329 runs scored and 50 stolen bases over the course of 2,575 at-bats.
