Sherrill is one of the very best to make his way from starting in Independent Baseball and getting sizeable time in the majors. He was with Atlanta last season. Sherrill started his pro journey at Evansville, IN of the Frontier League, and later pitched for Winnipeg and Sioux Falls, SD of the Northern League before his contract was sold to the Seattle Mariners.
BREWERS, TORONTO BUSY
Major league organizations continue signing former Indy players to new deals.
Shortstop/utilityman Erick Almonte (Long Island, NY, Atlantic League), who was so outstanding last spring training that he opened the National League season with Milwaukee, has signed a new Triple-A (Nashville) deal with the Brewers with a non-roster invitation to the major league camp in Arizona.
Pat Arlis also has re-signed with Milwaukee's top farm club. He caught for Kansas City, KS when the T-Bones were in the Northern League as well as playing for both Calgary and Orange County (Fullerton) of the Golden League. Another backstop, Mike Rivera (Atlantic City, NJ, Atlantic League), also has a new deal with the same Nashville Sounds.
Onetime Chicago Cubs starting prospect Robert Coello, a right-handed pitcher with Golden League time in both Edmonton and Calgary, is out of the free agent ranks after signing a Triple-A deal with Toronto.
