Lance Zawadzki followed up Saturday's grand slam with two more hits Sunday as a Blue Jays split-squad beat the Yankees 2-0.
It took a great defensive play to keep the 27-year-old Zawadzki from going 3-for-3. As is, he was 2-for-3 with a double, giving him an early .600 average. Last year, he hit just .227/.262/.323 for three Triple-A teams, so let's not read too much into the fast start. He was signed in December to provide minor league infield depth.

Cardinals signed INF Lance Zawadzki to a minor league contract.

It's the third organization he's been in this season, as Zawadski has batted .213/.254/.313 with three homers over 53 games at the Triple-A level for the Dodgers and Braves. He'll provide middle infield depth at Triple-A Memphis following Ryan Jackson's promotion.

He also gets a spring training invite. Zawadzki, 26, batted .233/.288/.383 with eight home runs, 40 RBI and a .671 OPS over 352 plate appearances with Triple-A Omaha in the Royals' organization this past season. The 2007 fourth-round pick hit .200 (7-for-35) in 20 games with the Padres in 2010.

Royals reassigned INFs Lance Zawadzki and Irving Fatu, RHPs Zach Miner, Louis Coleman and Luis Mendoza to minor league camp.

Zawadzki, who was claimed off waivers from the Padres in November, made a pretty good case for the Opening Day roster by batting .359 with three homers and nine RBI over 39 at-bats this spring, but he'll head to Triple-A Omaha for now. Miner is still working his way back from Tommy John surgery that cost him the entire 2010 season.

Zawadzki, 25 in May, was batting just .162/.240/.176 in 75 plate appearances at Triple-A, but the Padres were desperate for infield depth after the loss of Everth Cabrera. Zawadzki is unlikely to carry fantasy value.
