Warner Antonio Madrigal (born March 21, 1984) is a Dominican professional baseball pitcher who is currently a free agent. Madrigal appeared in Major League Baseball for the Texas Rangers.

Professional career[edit]

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim[edit]

Madrigal was signed out of the Dominican Republic by the Anaheim Angels in 2001. After spending three years as an outfielder for the Cedar Rapids Kernels, the Angels' Low-A affiliate, Madrigal was converted to a pitcher in 2006.

At the end of the 2007 season, the Angels decided to protect Madrigal from the Rule 5 Draft by putting him on their 40-man roster on November 6. However, because Madrigal had spent 6 years in the minor leagues with one team, he became a free agent at the close of the 2007 World Series on October 29.

Texas Rangers[edit]

The Texas Rangers subsequently signed Madrigal to a contract on November 18, 2007.[1]

Madrigal made his debut for the Rangers on July 2, 2008, pitching in the 7th inning against the New York Yankees at old Yankee Stadium. Madrigal lasted only one-third of an inning, giving up six runs and Brett Gardner's first career hit.

New York Yankees[edit]

Prior to the 2011 season, the Yankees signed Madrigal to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.[2]

Arizona Diamondbacks[edit]

On December 21, 2012, he signed a minor league contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Chunichi Dragons[edit]

Madrigal signed with the Chunichi Dragons for the 2013 season.

Washington Nationals[edit]

He signed a minor league deal with the Washington Nationals in January 2014.
