Marlins sign Jonathan Albaladejo, Ed Lucas, Amaury Rivas

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Miami has added two right-handers and a middle infielder on minor-league deals.

The Miami Marlins have added three players to their organization, signing right-hander Jonathan Albaladejo, infielder Ed Lucas, and right-hander Amaury Rivas to minor-league deals, reports Matt Eddy of Baseball America.

Albaladejo, 30, spent the 2008-2010 seasons pitching out of the New York Yankees' bullpen, and spent the 2011 season in Japan with the Yomiuri Giants, posting a 2.45 ERA in 46 appearances. The big right-hander signed on with the Arizona Diamondbacks for the 2012 but only appeared in three innings for the big-league club.

Albaladejo showed great promise in the minors and in his inaugural big-league stint -- allowing the Nationals to trade him straight-up for Tyler Clippard following the 2007 season -- but overall he has failed to translate his Triple-A success to the majors. The right-hander owns a career 4.34 ERA and 1.75 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 76⅔ innings over five seasons.

Lucas, 30, is a career minor-leaguer who has bounced around between the Royals, Braves and Angels' organizations over the last nine years. A career .277/.350/.396 hitter, Lucas has played at least one game at every position but catcher and pitcher, spending most of his time at third base and shortstop.

Rivas, 26, spent eight seasons in the Brewers' minor-league system, and put up a 4.88 ERA in 30 starts at their Triple-A affiliate over the past two years.
