KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The Kansas City T-Bones announced they have signed pitcher Rich Mascheri and infielders Chase McDonald and Avery Romero to contracts for the 2017 season.

Mascheri, 27 (08-07-89), is a 5-foot-10 and 190-pound left-handed pitcher from Wauconda, Ill. He split time last season between Southern Illinois of the independent Frontier League and Somerset of the independent Atlantic League. He went 1-0 with a 2.08 ERA in 16 appearances. In 17 1/3 innings, Mascheri struck out 21 and walked four. Mascheri started his professional career in the New York Yankees’ organization in 2012. He reached high-A Tampa in 2012 and ’13. In four professional seasons, Mascheri is 5-2 with 12 saves and a 2.45 ERA in 63 games, all in relief.

McDonald, 24 (06-02-92), is 6-foot-4 and 255 pounds out of Greenville, N.C. He has spent the first four seasons of his professional career in the Houston Astros’ organization. Last season, at double-A Corpus Christi, McDonald hit .227 with 89 hits, 17 home runs, 53 RBIs and 40 runs scored in 109 games. The previous season, at high-A Lancaster, McDonald hit 30 home runs. In four seasons, McDonald is a .259 hitter with 69 home runs and 233 RBIs.

Romero, 23 (05-11-93), is 5-foot-11 and 195 pounds from St. Augustine, Fla. He has spent the first five seasons of his professional career in the Miami organization, after the Marlins selected him in the third round of the 2012 MLB June Amateur Draft out of high school. Romero split the 2016 season between high-A Jupiter and double-A Jacksonville, batting .236 with 87 hits in 111 games.
