STEVE DELABAR GEARING UP FOR 2015 CAMPAIGN
Indepenent Baseball Insider - Vol. 12, No. 36, December 18, 2014

LHP Steve Delabar (Brockton 2008-09) is hoping to regain a good chunk of his 2013 American League All-Star form and cement a spot in the Toronto bullpen. He struck out 82 in 58.2 innings for the Blue Jays two seasons ago, making the All-Star team along the way, then took a big fall last season, his ERA jumping from 3.22 to 4.91 and being sent to Triple-A from mid-June on.
"I know I can contribute like I did in the past," Delabar told Sportsnet.ca recently. "Physically, I feel now like I did in the offseason leading into 2013."

CAN-AM LEAGUE PLAYERS IN THE CARIBBEAN WINTER LEAGUES
Winter Baseball Update - Caribbean Leagues

2014 Can-Am League MVP Balbino Fuenmayor (pictured) has been superb for the Anzoategui Caribes in the Venezuelan Winter League this season, hitting .321 with seven home runs, six doubles and 29 RBI in 33 games.
After a dominant season with the Quebec Capitales in 2014 in which he led the league with 99 RBI, the native of Valencia, Venezuela, was signed by the Kansas City Royals' organization during the off-season.

COLABELLO EXCITED FOR FRESH START WITH TORONTO
Independent Baseball Insider - Vol. 12, No. 35, December 11, 2014

Chris Colabello (Worcester 2005-11, Nashua 2007) was given a fresh start during the this week's Winter Meetings when re-building Toronto grabbed the first baseman-outfielder off waivers from Minnesota, where he homered 13 times in 401 plate appearances in his first two partial major league seasons. Indications are the 31-year-old will compete for playing time with Justin Smoak and possibly others at first base, although the right-handed hitter could return to Triple-A since he still has an option year.

SUSSEX COUNTY UNVEILS NAME, LOGO; NAMES G.M.
Miners to take field May 25, 2015

On Wednesday, Sussex Professional Baseball, LLC today announced that its new professional baseball team, set to start playing at Skylands Stadium on May 25, has a new name, team colors and general manager. The team will be called the Sussex County Miners and will be led by General Manager Dave Chase, a nationally-known baseball executive who brings over 35 years of experience to the role.

MORE TOP INDY STARS GET BIG PAYCHECKS TO PLAY ABROAD
Independent Baseball insider - Vol. 12, No. 34, November 20, 2014

It seems like a new trend for onetime Independent stars to head off to Japan or Korea for major paydays.

Andrew Albers (pictured, Quebec 2010) did just that (Korea) last season rather than face the long odds of being in Minnesota's rotation. Meanwhile, it would not be a shock to see seven-year Can-Am vet Chris Colabello (Worcester 2005-11, Nashua 2007) be next. The 31-year-old remains on Minnesota's 40-man roster, but would not rule out a trip overseas, where he could have had a $1 million pact last year.

CHAMPIONS NAME HAL LANIER NEW SKIPPER
Former N.L. Manager of the Year also led '08 Can-Am champs

Ottawa - Former major-league manager Hal Lanier returns to the Can-Am League as the first manager of the Ottawa Champions, the team announced at a press conference on Tuesday.

Lanier also managed the Sussex Skyhawks in 2008 and 2009, leading the team to the 2008 Can-Am League championship. From 1986 to 1988, he managed the Houston Astros, earning NL Manager of the Year honors in 1986.
