It wont be long now (February 2) when the winter baseball season wraps up with the start of the eagerly-awaited Caribbean Series, and it appears almost certain the Can-Am League and American Association will have considerable representation.

STRONG CAN-AM SEASON AS CLOSER GIVES SANCHEZ NEW LIFE
Indy Baseball Chatter by By Bob Wirz

Salvador Sanchez appears to be a really good test case to see how far one can advance in an affiliated league after converting from the outfield and getting one season of accelerated work as a closer in the Can-Am League.

The Miami Marlins have signed the 6-foot-5, 220-pound right-hander and placed him on their Triple-A New Orleans roster, based in great measure on a 25-save season with the New Jersey Jackals (Little Falls). Sanchez will pitch at 29 in 2015, but only the last four years of his first decade in pro baseball have come as a pitcher.

The Kansas City Royals must be happy with their recent purchase of Balbino Fuenmayor out of the Can-Am League (Quebec) because the corner infielder is not only putting up great numbers in Venezuela, but they look even more impressive when compared to Arizona outfielder David Peralta, who made a big impact in his rookie season in the National League.

Fuenmayor has 10 homers and 38 runs batted in along with a .315 average in the 42 games he has played (45-for-143).

ALBERS RETURNS FROM KOREA, GETS MAJOR LEAGUE BID FROM TORONTO
Indy Baseball Chatter by By Bob Wirz

With left-handed pitching always at a premium, Andrew Albers (pictured) is back from a one-year stay in Korea to try and regain a major league job, this time with Toronto. Albers got his feet on the ground professionally during a strong season in the bullpen for the Quebec Capitales of the Can-Am League in 2010 (3-0, 17 saves, 1.40 in 40 appearances), then had his contract purchased by Minnesota.

The Blue Jays not only signed the 29-year-old former University of Kentucky hurler but invited him to their major league spring training camp.
