As we are only a few days away from a full slate of games, teams are finalizing their rosters with depth signings and cuts. Let's take a look at today's minor transactions...
- The New York Mets signed infielder Bobby Scales to a minor league deal, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. The 34-year-old will report to Class Triple-A Buffalo. Primarily a second baseman, Scales has played every position with the exception of pitcher in his career. He played in Japan last year, but also spent time with the Cubs' organization.
- The New York Yankees signed right-handed pitcher Jason Bulger to a minor league deal, the club announced (via Erik Boland of Newsday). A former first round draft pick in the 2001 draft class, Bulger has bounced around and is now joining his fourth different organization.
- Lastly, the Seattle Mariners have released pitcher Aaron Heilman, according to Larry Stone of the Seattle Times. Heilman was with the club on a minor league deal with an invite to major league camp.
