I’m sorry that I haven’t been able to post this recently, I’ve been sick. Anyways, here’s the Round-Up: San Antonio and Lake Elsinore both put up double-digits on the scoreboard in their respective victories. The T-Pads won a close 1 run game while the TinCaps enjoyed a solid 6-1 victory. Eugene was the only team to lose and they were blown out 15-1.

The Padres were unable to get any scoring going again as they dropped the third and final game against the Dodgers. This was another game of great starting pitching that was ultimately wasted by no run support and someone in the bullpen giving up the winning run. That is two games in a row now that the Padres have lost to a 2-1 score; two games that they should have won. Padres are...

One significant year in Independent baseball and Jason Lane is back in the big leagues. During the Baseball Winter Meetings, the Minnesota Twins signed Jason Lane to a minor league deal.
I profiled Lane in August and at the time was named pitcher of the month for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Atlantic League.
Lane’s signing was detailed on the Skeeters’ website and he...
The Sugar Land Skeeters have themselves quite an MLB duo on their pitching staff; Scott Kazmir and Jason Lane. Jason Lane, for those who don’t remember, was a member of the 2005 NL Champion Houston Astros. And that season was Lane’s shining moment in the MLB. He batted .267 with 26 home runs and 78 RBI to go along with 34 doubles. In six MLB seasons, Lane tallied 61 big...
Back in mid-March I took a look at some interesting names that were making the conversion from minor league hitters to pitchers. The biggest success, so far, has been the emergence of Oakland’s Sean Doolittle who has now pitched 23.1 big league innings. Let’s see how everyone is doing as the minor league regular season starts to wind down.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The Diamondbacks made first cuts of the spring Thursday, sending 12 players out of major league camp.
D-backs manager Kirk Gibson mentioned Sunday that some cuts were coming and was torn between sending out relievers and young starting pitchers. It appears he went with relievers, as six relievers were optioned or reassigned.
Among the more notable cuts were...
Now to do some jumping around major league spring training camps with some of the diamonds in the rough. Names you don’t know now, but might soon will.
Jason Lane, Arizona—“My arm is somewhat fresh, and I’ve taken care of it,” said the first baseman-outfielder, trying to return to the majors as a pitcher with the Diamondbacks. “I don’t have the wear...
