ONCE MORE, FUENMAYOR IS ON A RUN
Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

Balbino Fuenmayor is on one of his biggest offensive outbursts in his home country today, driving in 11 runs and going 12-for-19 with three homers and the same number of doubles in his last five games to make anyone following winter league baseball take notice.

He leads the Venezuelan League in hitting at .413 for his first 21 games, has gotten on base at a league-best .478 clip, has driven in 18 runs and has the No. 2 OPS of 1.091. The marks are even more impressive at .472/.535/1.368 for his last 10 appearances.

LEAGUE SAVE LEADER BECKER PICKED UP BY ROYALS
Capitales stopper's 24 saves tied for 3rd in league history

Durham, N.C. -- The contract of Quebec Capitales LHP Nolan Becker has been purchased by the Kansas City Royals organization, the Can-Am League announced on Wednesday.

Becker was outstanding in his first season with Quebec in 2017, going 5-1 with a 1.14 ERA and 24 saves, leading the league and tying the Capitales' all-time franchise high (Derek Hooker, 2014), as well as tying for third all-time in league history.

FORMER JACKAL HELLWEG STAYS WITH PIRATES

Similar to other organizations, Pittsburgh trimmed 15 players from its minor league system, but one who escaped the axe was Johnny Hellweg, who was picked up from the New Jersey Jackals with only about two weeks remaining in the season and helped Double-A Altoona win the Eastern League title. Just turned 29, the 6-foot-7 righty, who spent the last two months of '16 and most of '17 sharpening his skills with the Jackals. He had 19 saves this season to go with a 2-3 record and 3.79 ERA. Presumably, he will get a good look next spring as he tries to return to the majors.

CAN-AM LEAGUE UNVEILS 2018 SCHEDULE
102-game schedule sees all 6 league members returning

Durham, N.C. -- The Can-Am League unveiled its 2018 schedule on Tuesday, featuring the return of international opponents and 102 games per team, the most in league history.

REGNAULT KNOCKING ON MAJOR-LEAGUE DOOR
Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

The premium that always goes with left-handed pitchers and the uniqueness of starting a professional career in the Can-Am League directly out of college and eventually making it to the major leagues makes New York Mets farmhand Kyle Regnault a marked man this offseason.

It appears the soon-to-be 29-year-old (December 13) from the University of Rhode Island may well be up for the challenge.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR MALONEY GETS PRAISE FROM ORIOLES BOSS
Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

The Rockland trio of Stephen Cardullo, Joe Maloney and Junior Arrojo caused all sorts of headaches for Can-Am opponents while putting up dominant numbers for the Boulders the past few seasons. It would not surprise many if those success stories continued now that they are making news with major league organizations.

Primarily a first baseman and outfielder, Maloney broke the Can-Am record with 35 home runs, drove in 101 runs and scored 84 runs to earn Player of the Year honors.

Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

Similar to other organizations, Pittsburgh trimmed 15 players from its minor league system, but one who escaped the axe was Johnny Hellweg, who was picked up from the New Jersey Jackals with only about two weeks remaining in the season and helped Double-A Altoona win the Eastern League title. Just turned 29, the 6-foot-7 righty, who spent the last two months of '16 and most of '17 sharpening his skills with the Jackals. He had 19 saves this season to go with a 2-3 record and 3.79 ERA. Presumably, he will get a good look next spring as he tries to return to the majors.

The premium that always goes with left-handed pitchers and the uniqueness of starting a professional career in the Can-Am League directly out of college and eventually making it to the major leagues makes New York Mets farmhand Kyle Regnault a marked man this offseason.

It appears the soon-to-be 29-year-old (December 13) from the University of Rhode Island may well be up for the challenge.

It would not surprise many if those success stories continued now that they are making news with major league organizations.

Primarily a first baseman and outfielder, Maloney broke the Can-Am record with 35 home runs, drove in 101 runs and scored 84 runs to earn Player of the Year honors.
