Brett Eibner was designated for assignment by the Oakland Athletics. Hopefully he will clear waivers so he can sign with any team. I would suspect there are teams that could use him but he would probably start the year in the minors.
Today he was signed by the Dodgers: http://www.wholehogsports.com/news/2017 … g-dodgers/
That article says that Eibner is from San Diego. He is from The Woodlands, TX.
He was born in San Diego and moved to Houston some time before high school.
I learned this week that Zack Cox was signed by the Tigers and will start minor league camp in a few weeks. He started last season in the Nationals program, but had to be cut because of the strange signing system of the Rule 5 draft. He spent the summer on an independent team in Wichita, Kan.
