Diamondbacks signed INF Angel Berroa to a minor league contract.

Berroa hasn't played in the big leagues since 2009, when he appeared for both New York teams. The former AL Rookie of the Year is now 34 and hasn't played anywhere yet this season.

Giants released INF Angel Berroa.

Berroa was signed to a minor league contract by the club in April. The 2003 Rookie of the Year was batting a meager .205/.247/.307 with one home run and eight RBI over 88 at-bats with Triple-A Fresno.

Giants signed INF Angel Berroa to a minor league contract; optioned him to Triple-A Fresno.

Berroa failed to crack the Dodgers' Opening Day roster after being handed a minor league contract in December. The 32-year-old is unlikely to have an impact on the Giants' big league plans this season.

Dodgers released infielder Angel Berroa.

Los Angeles is clearing minor league house, cutting Berroa loose after releasing Eric Gagne last night. Now 32 years old, Berroa hasn't cracked a 700 OPS since winning Rookie of the Year in 2003.

Dodgers signed 3B Angel Berroa to a minor league contract.

The deal includes an invitation to spring training but Berroa will struggle to crack the Dodgers' Opening Day roster. He hit just .143/.208/.184 in 49 at-bats this past season and will turn 32 in late January.

Mets designated infielder Angel Berroa for assignment.

The move clears 40-man roster space for the newly acquired Anderson Hernandez. At 31 years of age, Berroa is quickly becoming a lost cause. He batted just .136/.174/.182 in 21 games with the Yankees earlier this season and didn't fare much better with the Mets.

Mets purchased the contract of infielder Angel Berroa from Triple-A Buffalo.

Berroa batted just .136/.174/.182 in 21 games with the Yankees this season prior to getting designated for assignment in late June and subsequently released last week. He possesses no fantasy value.

Angel Berroa will replace Argenis Reyes on the Mets roster, reports Ben Shpigel in a post on Twitter.

Berroa is at Turner Field for Thursday's game against the Braves. He batted just .136/.174/.182 in 21 games with the Yankees this season prior to getting designated for assignment in late June. Berroa possesses no semblance of fantasy value.
Thu, Jul 16, 2009 02:43:00 PM

Mets signed infielder Angel Berroa to a minor league contract and assigned him to Triple-A Buffalo.

A huge 24 hours for the Amazins'. The former Rookie of the Year batted just .136/.174/.182 in 21 games with the Yankees this season. He was designated for assignment on June 24 and released on Tuesday. With the rash of injuries on the Mets roster, he's a good bet to see time in the bigs again soon. And that's not a good thing.

Yankees designated infielder Angel Berroa for assignment.

The 2003 AL Rookie of the Year was hitting just .136/.174/.182 in 21 games. It's been four years since he's been even a replacement level major league player.
Wed, Jun 24, 2009 07:41:00 PM

Yankees purchased the contract of infielder Angel Berroa from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Berroa was probably the Yankees' best choice at third base all along, not that it would have made much of a difference. He'll probably have some short-term value in AL-only leagues until Alex Rodriguez returns.
Sat, Apr 25, 2009 04:10:00 PM

Angel Berroa is reportedly poised to be called up by the Yankees from Triple-A Scranton.

They may try to use him at third base until Alex Rodriguez is back in the fold. There is no word yet on what corresponding roster move the team may make.
Sat, Apr 25, 2009 11:42:00 AM

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's Angel Berroa went 4-for-5 and homered twice Friday.

Berroa outhit both Cody Ransom and Ramiro Pena this spring, but the Yankees chose to demote him anyway. He's hitting .350/.396/.600 through 40 at-bats for Scranton. There's still a case for having him take over for Ransom at third base now, but with Alex Rodriguez making steady progress, the Yankees probably won't make a change.
Sat, Apr 18, 2009 03:05:00 PM

Yankees reassigned infielder Angel Berroa to minor league camp.

As far as winning baseball games, the Yankees had very little to gain or lose when it came to making a decision on Berroa versus Ramiro Pena. Neither was going to play more than once a week, and whatever upgrade Berroa was offensively, Pena figured to make up for with his glove. Still, Berroa over Pena seemed like the right move. Pena still has a lot to gain by playing regularly in Triple-A -- he's never spent a day at the level -- and Berroa deserved a job after hitting .371/.381/.597 this spring. If Berroa had it to do all over again, he surely would have signed with another team.
