Revolution add infielder Manny Mayorson
Before Saturday’s game at Camden, the Revolution added minor league veteran infielder Manuel “Manny” Mayorson to the roster. This is Mayorson’s 14th professional season after debuting as a professional with the Toronto Blue Jays organization in 2000. Mayorson has enjoyed Triple-A time with the Blue Jays, Marlins and Nationals organizations, and played last season at both Triple-A Syracuse and Double-A Harrisburg with Washington. A veteran of over 1,300 minor league games, Mayorson is a .269 career hitter. He knocked in a career-high 55 runs in 2006 at Double-A New Hampshire in the Toronto system, and came close to that mark with 54 RBI in 2011 at Triple-A Las Vegas, in just 97 games. Througout his career the veteran has seen extensive time at short, second and third, providing the Revolution with some defensive versatility.
The roster is back at the pre-June 1 max of 27 players, as no one was released as a part of this transaction. We’re now exactly one week away from the deadline where all Atlantic League active rosters must be at 25 players for the remainder of the season.
