Yankees Sign Noteware, Alexander & Palmer

The New York Yankees have signed two more undrafted free agents, Mike Noteware and Tyler Palmer. The Yankees also signed catcher Kevin Alexander to a minor league deal according to the transactions page on

Noteware is a pitcher out of Lewis & Clark State College and stands at 6'1" and 185 lbs. Noteware suffered a shoulder injury that cost him much of his 2013 season but had a 2.16 ERA in 2014 while striking out 74 batters.

Palmer is an infielder that was drafted in the 4th round out of High School in the 2011 draft but shortly punched through a window and sliced up a lot of muscles and tendons in his arm. Originally he was told he would never play baseball again and had three surgeries on the hand before regaining some feeling. Palmer has stopped switch hitting and is not as slick as he once was with the glove but the Yankees got themselves a former Triple Crown winner from 2013 for next to nothing.

Kevin Alexander is a guy to keep an eye on. His MiLB page has nothing on it, no stats, nothing. He is a 23 year old catcher out of Dallas Baptist College and stands at 5'11" and 210 lbs.
