Brooklyn – Tonight’s Brooklyn Cylones game was another step for Angel Berroa, the major league infielder recently claimed on waivers by the Mets. Berroa, who was the American League Rookie of the Year in 2003, last played in the majors with the New York Yankees this season, from April 25th  through June 23rd.


Berroa broke in with the Kansas City Royals and was their shortstop from 2003 – 2007. He played with the Dodgers last season and with the Yankees until being placed on waivers by the Bombers.


Berroa, a 31-year-old right-handed hitter who has played second base, third base and shortstop — started off the season with the Yankees but was designated for assignment in late June.

In his short stint with the Bronx Bombers, he went 3-for-22 (.136) with an RBI. Signed as an amateur free agent by the Athletics in 1997, Berroa played 14 games for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, batting .316 (18-for-57) with two home runs and 13 RBIs before being promoted.

In his nine-year career, he sports a .259 batting average, .304 on-base percentage and .376 slugging percentage.
