DODGERS SIGN T-BONES CATCHER BIANCHI

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The Kansas City T-Bones announced on Monday that the Los Angeles Dodgers have purchased the contract of catcher Chris Bianchi.

Bianchi, a rookie who’s 6-foot-1 and 220 pounds, batted .143 in 10 games in 2014 after signing with the T-Bones in late July. He finished his collegiate career last spring at Trinity University, where he was selected as a member of the All-Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference team.

“We wish Chris the best of luck this spring and summer in the Dodgers system,” said T-Bones manager John Massarelli.

Bianchi is the 23rd T-Bones player whose contract has been sold to a Major League organization. The previous was pitcher Dustin Loggins, whose contract was purchased by the Arizona Diamondbacks in September 2013.
