Outfielder Jared Mitchell, a key member of the 2016 York Revolution playoff club and the 2017 championship squad, has signed a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds for the 2018 season, it was announced today.
Baseball America has selected York Revolution infielder/outfielder Alonzo Harris as its 2017 Independent Leagues Player of the Year, the magazine announced on Friday.

The York Revolution made their first moves toward constructing the 2018 roster, selecting four former members of the Bridgeport Bluefish in the Atlantic League’s player dispersal draft on Wednesday morning. While none of the three players will officially become members of the 2018 Revs until signing a contract once the signing period opens in the new year, the Revs do hold their Atlantic League rights and will have exclusive negotiating rights with those players through the off-season.

The York Revolution have re-signed power hitting first baseman Telvin Nash, who will be active for tonight’s series opener against the Bluefish (6:30 p.m. at PeoplesBank Park). Nash returns to the Revs where over parts of two seasons, he has batted .272 with a .389 OBP and 28 home runs in only 118 games, becoming the second-fastest in franchise history to reach his home run total behind only former Revs all-time home run leader Chris Nowak.

The Revs have signed third baseman Chase Simpson, as York wraps up first half play with a three game series against the Sugar Land Skeeters, Friday. Simpson is in his fourth professional season, originally drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 14th Round of 2014 out of Wichita State University. The switch hitting third baseman was named an MiLB organization all-star with the Jamestown Jammers after his first professional season, and was a mid-season all-star in 2015 with the West Virginia Power, where he reached career-highs in home runs (11) and RBI (68). The Dallas, TX native began his season in Double-A, Altoona, before joining the Revs.
The Revs also signed catcher Jay Carp last week, after Derik Capitillo was forced to leave the team for personal reasons. Carp joins the Revolution for his second professional season, after playing for Utica in the United Shore Professional Baseball League last year. The 22-year-old turned pro after playing at Chaffey College in his home state of California.
