Yankees Sign Nate Coronado out of the Atlantic League



The New York Yankees brought in a little more minor league depth this week when the organization plucked away an infielder from the Atlantic League. The Yankees announced the signing of infielder Nate Coronado from the Lancaster Barnstormers out of the Atlantic League.

Coronado is 25-years old and at the time of this writing was at the team’s spring training camp in Tampa, Florida awaiting an assignment to one of the team’s minor league affiliates. The infielder joined the Barnstormers following the 2017 All-Star break where he batted .333 in 60 games with six home runs and 38 RBI.

Barnstormers manager Ross Peeples spoke highly of him when news broke that Coronado was signed by New York stating that the 25-year old “can play multiple positions and, with his age, definitely deserves this opportunity. Source goes to the Lancaster Barnstormers who broke the news first.

Welcome to the organization, Nate, and welcome to the family.
