Minor League 2014 Free Agent Signings

Just like the Major League free agents, there are those minor league players that have become eligible for free agency and have either resigned with their 2014 team or signed on to take their talents with a organization.

While looking at the list, two names stood out to me as players still in the game hoping to make it back to the show.
