NORTHERN LEAGUE BASEBALL: RedHawks sign another former major leaguer

The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks on Monday signed former major league third baseman Yurendell DeCaster.

DeCaster, 28, hit .252 with 10 home runs and 47 RBI in 89 games last season for the Columbus Clippers, the Triple A affiliate of the Washington Nationals.

An undrafted free agent signing of the Tampa Bay Rays in 1996, DeCaster played in three games for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2006.

DeCaster is from Curacao in The Netherlands. Recent RedHawks signing Randall Simon is also from Curacao.
