VALDES BACK IN THE BIG LEAGUES WITH ASTROS
Lefty reliever joins fifth major league team

LHP Raul Valdes (New Jersey/Nashua '06) was called up to the Houston Astros on Thursday from Triple-A Oklahoma City, where he had gone 1-0 with a 2.45 ERA in four appearances so far this season.
Now in his fifth big-league season, the 36-year-old native of Havana, Cuba, has also pitched with the Cardinals, Mets, Phillies and Yankees. In 2013, he made 17 appearances for Philadelphia, including one start, assembling a 1-1 record and a 7.46 ERA in 35.0 innings of work.

GARCIA MAKES BRIEF, BUT EFFECTIVE, RETURN TO MAJORS
RHP is perfect on Monday vs. Atlanta

RHP Luis Garcia (Newark 2012), who had a superb rookie campaign with Philadelphia in 2013, returned to the big leagues on Monday evening and retired all three Atlanta hitters he faced in relief. Called up on Sunday, Garcia appeared in the eighth inning of the Phillies' 9-6 loss to Atlanta, striking out one and inducing a lineout and groundout.

Independent Baseball Insider By Bob Wirz Vol. 12, No. 6, April 10, 2014

Bridger Hunt was a hitting machine last season, winning the Can-Am League batting title by 83 points with his .402 season (69 games) before the San Diego Padres purchased his contract, which kept the Newark, NJ infielder-outfielder off the postseason all-star team.

While it is very early, the 28-year-old is off to a very fast start for the Padres' Class AA San Antonio, TX farm club, playing virtually every day and hitting .357 (5-for-14) in his first four games with a double and three runs scored.

COLABELLO NAMED A.L. CO-PLAYER OF THE WEEK
1B/DH hit .391 with league-leading 11 RBI

Over six games last week, Colabello hit .391 (9-for-23) with four doubles, one home run, 11 RBIs and four runs scored. He led all AL players in RBIs while ranking second in doubles, tying for third in total bases (16) and tying for fifth in hits and slugging percentage (.696).
