According to Kayla Thompson of Indy Ball Island, the Pirates have signed former Independent ball infielder Anderson Feliz.
Feliz was signed by the New York Yankees out of the Dominican Republic back in 2009. The 23-year-old switch-hitter played six seasons in the Yankees system, as he put up just a .693 OPS. Prior to last season, Feliz signed on with the Lancaster Barnstormers of the Atlantic League, posting a .759 OPS in 92 games where he played mostly shortstop and the outfield. My guess is Feliz will begin 2016 with AA Altoona.
