National players sign Nomar Mazara, Richie Martin for minor leagues

The Nationals announce they have signed the midfielder Nomar Mazara and midfielder Richie Martin to minor league deals. Both players were assigned to Triple-A Rochester.

Mazara has recorded MLB time for seven consecutive seasons. The former top prospect has never emerged as the mid-range racquet that Rangers reviewers and fans have come to expect after he made his way through the minor leagues. Mazara had reliable numbers as a rookie but failed to make the expected strides over the next few seasons. The left-hander was a slightly below average attacking player for four seasons before being assigned to the White Sox in 2020.

Since leaving Arlington, Mazara has had a particularly difficult time. He’s matched with the White Sox, Tigers and Padres, scoring between 100 and 200 appearances in each season. Back in early 2020, Mazara had a cumulative score of 0.235/.295/.324 with just six home runs and a 25.7% hit rate in 501 appearances.

The 27-year-old (28 later this month) has signed a minor league contract with the Orioles over the winter. He spent the spring with Baltimore, hitting .231/.286/.308 in 39 hits. After failing to make it through the camp exit list, he was released at the end of Spring Training. A few weeks later, Mazara started joining the Nationals – the sixth organization of his career.

Martin’s only MLB experience came in Baltimore. Picked out of the Oakland organization with the first pick of the 2018 Rule 5 draft, he scored 0.208/.260/.322 in 309 appearances as a rookie. That helped Orioles retain the rights under his long-term contract but he appeared in just 50 more games for the club over the next three seasons.

The product of the University of Florida is a career .212/.261/.311 goalscorer across 170 major league games. Martin carries the .240/.336/.366 series in Triple-A grade. Despite his bland offense, he was still of interest as a depth pick for his defence throughout the infield. He’ll add some coverage behind the midfield parallels CJ Abrams And Luis Garcia with Rochester.
