Durham, N.C. -- The contract of New Jersey Jackals RHP Andres Santiago has been purchased by the Atlanta Braves organization, the Can-Am League announced on Monday.

The Bayamon, Puerto Rico, native was acquired by New Jersey from Sussex County in August, and during his time with the Jackals, he allowed two runs in 11.1 innings of work in eight games pitched.

HOME RUNS ABOUND FOR CAN-AM PLAYERS IN SPRING TRAINING

Players of the Year Balbino Fuenmayor (Quebec, 2014) and Art Charles (pictured, New Jersey, 2016), bidding to squeeze they way onto Opening Day rosters, made big-time news with their first round-trippers of the major league spring training. Charles struck on Friday, one day ahead of Fuenmayor.

But Stephen Cardullo (Rockland, 2013-15) did his best to steal the spotlight back on Sunday when he blasted his second grand slam of the Cactus League season (he also had one in the regular season for Colorado last year).

Durham, N.C. – The contract of Trois-Rivières Aigles RHP Dylan Rheault has been purchased by the San Francisco Giants, the Can-Am League announced on Monday. The Aigles acquired Rheault from the Winnipeg Goldeyes of the American Association in February.

Rheault, 24, began the 2016 campaign with the Goldeyes, but was traded to Sioux City after his first appearance of the year. Between the two clubs, he went 1-1 with a 3.94 ERA in 34 appearances, 33 of them out of the bullpen.

There does not seem to be a perfect blueprint as to where the Colorado Rockies will place outfielder-first baseman Stephen Cardullo this season. Ideally, he will travel home with the Rockies when spring training ends. Or, he may get squeezed out and go back to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Either way, this veteran of three seasons ('13-'15) with the Rockland Boulders continues to be a near-perfect poster boy for the Can-Am League.

FUENMAYOR, COLABELLO, CARDULLO START SOLIDLY IN SPRING TRAINING

A fast start in spring training may not earn a regular-season job, but it certainly cannot hurt. The elite names among Can-Am grads trying to nail down major league jobs are doing very well.

The first base trio of Chris Colabello, Stephen Cardullo and Balbino Fuenmayor (pictured) all are getting playing time and are producing. In two spring games, Fuenmayor has gone 1-for-2 with a run, while Colabello has two doubles and a homer in his nine official at bats with two runs batted in.
