Europeans in the USA Comments Off on Europeans in the Majors & Minors through June 29


By DZ

Here’s an update going into Sunday’s games. We’ll aim to do a weekly update through the end of August, as there are many more players to keep track of now that the short season leagues are underway.

Over the last few days, Germany’s Donald Lutz was sent down to Double-A after nearly two months on the Cincinnati Reds big league roster… and Italy’s Alex Liddi was designated for assignment – removed from the 40-man roster of the Seattle Mariners. He’ll now go through waivers, and is likely to be claimed by another team.

Current team: Arizona Diamondbacks (MLB)
Gregorius is hitting .269 over the past 10 days at SS for the D’backs. Overall he maintains a .286 batting average and .348 OBP. The 23-year-old Amsterdam native “hit” a go-ahead bunt single in the 11th inning Friday to beat the Washington Nationals.

Roger Bernadina, Washington Nationals. Netherlands.
Current team: Washington Nationals (MLB)
Bernadina is back from his eye infection – he’s 4 for 18 over the last 10 days with 3 runs scored.. For the 2013 season the outfielder is now hitting .186 with 14 runs, 2 home runs, and 2 stolen bases.

Triple A-
