WITH STRONG SPRING, TWINS ADD BRESLOW TO BIG-LEAGUE ROSTER
Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

Craig Breslow has pitched in 539 major league games since his days with the New Jersey Jackals 13 years ago re-launched what could have been a short professional career, and now this 36-year-old lefthander will have an opportunity to keep adding to that impressive total.

Faced with a deadline Monday in which Breslow could have gone elsewhere if not added to Minnesota's 40-man roster, the Twins acted and thereby virtually assured themselves of the onetime Yale star being in their bullpen come Opening Day.

JACKALS' HURLER SANTIAGO HEADS TO ATLANTA
Righty split 2016 season between New Jersey, Sussex

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.

In his first season in the league in 2016, Santiago went 3-6 with a 4.30 ERA in 28 outings, 18 of them in relief. 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.

BRAVES PICK UP CAPITALES’ RIGHTY TRIANA
Offseason acquisition hurled 3 shutout innings for Colombia in WBC

Durham, N.C. – The contract of Quebec Capitales RHP Karl Triana has been purchased by the Atlanta Braves organization, the Can-Am League announced on Friday.

Triana was acquired from the Gary SouthShore RailCats over the offseason, and was scheduled to begin his first campaign with the Capitales.

HOME RUNS ABOUND FOR CAN-AM PLAYERS IN SPRING TRAINING
Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

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).

AIGLES' ACQUISITION RHEAULT MOVES ON TO GIANTS
Righty reliever was traded to Trois-Rivieres in February

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.

FORMER BOULDER CARDULLO LEADS ROCKIES IN SPRING TRAINING RBI

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.
