07/29/2015 1:04 PM -

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – As they return to action tonight at Sioux Falls after two days off, the Kansas City T-Bones announced they’ve signed infielders Ernie Banks, Jr. and Sergio Leon.

Banks — no relation to “Mr. Cub” Ernie Banks — is a 6-foot-4 and 260-pound infielder from Chesapeake, Va. Banks, whom the Florida Marlins selected in the 44th round of the 2007 MLB June Amateur Draft out of Norfolk State University, has spent the majority of his eight-year professional career in independent leagues. He played eight games this season with Garden State of the Can-Am League, batting .200. In 498 career games, Banks is a career .298 hitter with 545 hits, 66 home runs and 324 RBIs.

Leon is a 5-foot-10 and 175-pound rookie infielder from Miami. He hit .266 in 49 games, with 49 hits and 22 RBIs for Marshall University this past season. As Marshall’s shortstop, Leon committed 13 errors in 207 chances in 2015.

To make room for Banks and Leon, the T-Bones placed infielder Vladimir Frias on the disabled list due to an injury suffered Friday night against Winnipeg. Additionally, infielder Ryan Cavan has announced his retirement.
