Melville Cole Armstrong (born August 24, 1983 in Surrey, British Columbia) is a minor league catcher with the Chicago White Sox organization.

Minor League Career

While attending high school at Delphi Academy in Langley, British Columbia, Armstrong played multiple seasons for the Whalley Chiefs (now the Fraser Valley Chiefs) of the B.C. Premier Baseball League. He played for Canada at the 2000 World Junior Baseball Championship in Sherbrooke, Quebec.

Armstrong was drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the 12th round (487th overall) of the 2003 Major League Baseball Draft. He played one year for the University of Kansas Jayhawks in 2002 before entering the minor league system. After stints with the Gulf Coast League Braves in 2003, the Danville Braves in 2004 and the Rome Braves in 2005, Armstrong was picked by the White Sox that winter in the Rule 5 Draft.

He split parts of the next two seasons between the Winston-Salem Warthogs and the Birmingham Barons. Halfway through the 2008 season, he was promoted to the AAA Charlotte Knights where he has remained through the 2009 season.

Armstrong was designated for assignment on January 12, 2010.[1]
