The Camden Riversharks announced the signing of three Major League Baseball veterans on Tuesday.
- During a 10-year MLB career, third baseman Mike Lamb played for the Texas Rangers, Houston Astros, Minnesota Twins, Milwaukee Brewers and Florida Marlins. He played in the 2005 World Series as a member of the Astros. Last year, Lamb appeared in 39 games for the Marlins, primarily as a pinch hitter.
- Catcher Toby Hall spent nine years in the majors, seven with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. The 35-year-old still appears in the top five on several Devil Rays career records lists. Last season, Hall appeared in just one minor league game after apparently sitting out the entire 2009 season. It looks like he’s trying to come back from some sort of injury. Hall last played in the majors for the Chicago White Sox in 2008.
- Thirty-seven year-old Jason Johnson is an 11-year MLB veteran. The right-hander has played for 9 teams between 1997 and 2008, but spent the most time with the Baltimore Orioles. If Johnson played last season, I can’t find his stat line.
