What happens to former major leaguers who can’t catch on with a team? Many of them go to independent leagues. For instance, we’ve seen Shawn Chacon surface with the Newark Bears and the likes of Preston Wilson, Lew Ford, and Brad Halsey hit Gary Carter’s Long Island Ducks. Some, though, head to the Mexican league. There are some great names on that list, throwbacks you might not have heard in a while. As far as former Yanks go, the following players can be found in Al Aceves’s former stomping grounds: Juan Acevedo, Ruben Rivera, D’Angelo Jimenez, and Felix Heredia. I suppose you could count Victor Zambrano too, but I’d rather not.
