York Signs Gonzalez And Scott

The York Revolution announced on Friday that they have signed shortstop Danny Gonzalez and catcher Travis Scott for the 2012 season.

Danny Gonzalez was a  4th round (115th overall) selection by Philadelphia Phillies in the 2000 MLB Amateur Draft. He played four and half seasons in the Phillies organization, advancing as high as Double-A in 2004 and 2005 with Reading. He was released by the Phillies mid-way through the 2005 season and signed with the Lancaster Barnstormers. Gonzalez played mostly for the Barnstormers from 2005 to 2008 but did have stops in the Cubs organization with Dayton in 2006, as well as Oaxaca in the Mexican League in 2008. Last season, he hit .289 with 4 home runs and 37 RBI for the Road Warriors.

Travis Scott was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in the 20th round (593rd overall) of the 2005 MLB Amateur Draft. He played five seasons in the Mariners organization with his best season coming into 2009, when he hit .285 with 15 home runs and 71 RBI. In June 2010, Scott was released by the Mariners organization but signed with Rockford RiverHawks in the Northern League and .300 with 5 home runs and 29 RBI in 65 games.  Last season, he played 13 games between Bradenton(A) and Altoona(AA) in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization.

Two solid additions to the York roster. Not only does Gonzalez bring a solid bat to their lineup but he's one of the best defensive shortstops in the league. Last season, he had a .975 fielding percentage. Travis Scott will add some power to York's lineup.
