1B Martin Bido (21, A) - minor league contract
C Bill Mytton (21, AAA) - minor league contract
Bido had an average '08 season with Manchester's AA affiliate. He has progressed well in '09 at AAA and projects one day to be a serviceable first baseman.
Mytton did not play as well after the trade while playing for Canton's AAA affiliate. A superb defensive catcher, Mytton does not have the offensive talent to become a big league regular. At best, he may grow into a defensive backup catcher but his lack of offense makes him a liability in the batting order.
