Alejandro De Aza joins the Bees for his first season in the Atlantic League and 17th of professional baseball. Last year, the former big leaguer split time between Triple-A Syracuse and the Gulf Coast League Nationals of the Washington Nationals organization. In 41 combined games, he posted a .296 batting average with eight doubles, 19 runs scored, and 20 RBI.
The 35-year-old began his professional career with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2002 after being signed as an amateur free agent. He would head to the Florida Marlins three years later, and after two impressive campaigns in the Marlins farm system, De Aza made his Major League debut in 2007 at the age of 23. He spent 10 seasons in the big leagues from 2007 to 2017 with the Marlins, Chicago White Sox, Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, San Francisco Giants, New York Mets, and Washington Nationals and appeared in over 100 games during five of those years. In 838 career Major League games, the slugger owns a .260 batting average with 131 doubles, 51 home runs, 367 runs scored, 258 RBI, and 91 stolen bases.
Over the course of 774 career minor league games, Alejandro has comprised a .286 batting average with 167 doubles, 42 home runs, 305 RBI, 473 runs scored, and 176 stolen bases.
