Warner Antonio Madrigal (born March 21, 1984) is a Dominican professional baseball player for the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. A pitcher, Madrigal appeared in Major League Baseball for the Texas Rangers.

Professional career

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. 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 in Yankee Stadium. Unfortunately, Madrigal only lasted for one-third of an inning, where he gave up six runs and Brett Gardner's first career hit.

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

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