Bluefish sign three more!

The Bridgeport Bluefish have signed infielders Pedro Lopez and Brett Dowdy, as well as pitcher Gilbert De La Vara.
Pedro Lopez has played in the White Sox, Reds, Blue Jays, Pirates and Nationals organizations. In 2005, he played 2 games in the major leagues for the Chicago White Sox going 2 for 7 with 2 RBI. In 2007, he made it back to the major leagues this time with the Reds, where he hit .178 in 14 games. Last season he split time between Harrisburg(AA), and Syracuse(AAA) in the Nationals organization.

Brett Dowdy was originally selected by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 9th round (271st overall) of the 2003 MLB Amateur Draft. He played two seasons in the Dodgers organization before being traded to the Padres in 2005. Dowdy played five seasons in the Padres organization advancing to AAA on four separate occasions. Dowdy only played 21 games in 2010, splitting time between the Brewers organization, the Nuevo Laredo Tecolotes (Mexican League), and Winnipeg Goldeyes (Northern League). According to Baseball Cube, Dowdy had no stats in 2011, so I assume he did not play last season.

Gilbert De La Vera was originally selected by Kansas City Royals in the 15th round (445th overall) of the 2004 MLB Amateur Draft. He played five seasons in the Royals organization, with his best coming in 2007 with the Wilmington Blue Rocks(A+) when he was 2-1 with a 0.82 ERA in 33 innings pitched. In 2011, he played for the Yuma Scorpions in the North American league where he posted a 6-8 record with a 6.83 ERA.
