Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

At the age of 35 by mid-season and with only eight major league innings the last two seasons, Steve Delabar may not seem to be a formidable bullpen addition for Texas.

But the big Kentuckian (6-foot-4, 220 pounds), one of the most successful of the Can-Am League's finds, has a resume that includes 190 major league appearances including selection to the American League All-Star team in 2013 so the Rangers have signed Delabar to a minor league contract and will give him an opportunity in their major league spring training camp.

The Can-Am League has a new major leaguer--at least for spring training. LHP Jarret Martin, who divided time among Ottawa, Sussex County and Rockland during the 2016 season, has joined the Oakland Athletics organization and been invited to their major league camp in Mesa, AZ next month.

Martin, 28, has spent three of his eight professional seasons in Double-A, including last summer when he posted a sparkling 2.04 earned run average for 37 appearances (one start) for San Francisco's farm club in Richmond starting in June.

Jay Baum and Ryan Bollinger are two more examples of players turned away from major league-affiliated opportunities who moved to the Can-Am League for valuable experience and now are excelling in winter league play while young enough to have a great deal of upside in the professional game.
Baum is a 25-year-old infielder-outfielder setting a torrid hitting pace in the Australian League while Bollinger is a year older but no less successful in the same league as a left-handed pitcher.

For the second time this month, one of the Can-Am League's most successful players has given up a possible major league job to try a foreign league where the paycheck probably will be better.

This time it is southpaw Andrew Albers, who, ironically, is less than three months removed from his most successful major league stint when he won five of six decisions in nine appearances (six starts) for the Seattle Mariners.

Little Falls, N.J. -- The New Jersey Jackals announced today that Brooks Carey has been named the teamís new manager.

For the third time in franchise history, the Ottawa Champions have sold a contract to a Major League Baseball organization. Former major-league RHP Phillippe Aumont had his contract sold to the Detroit Tigers on Monday.

Aumont signed with Ottawa on June 7, 2017, after attending the Championsí training camp to get back into playing shape. His 2017 stat line saw him start 17 games in a Champions uniform, posting an ERA of 4.51 in 115.2 innings pitched.

At the age of 35 by mid-season and with only eight major league innings the last two seasons, Steve Delabar may not seem to be a formidable bullpen addition for Texas.

But the big Kentuckian (6-foot-4, 220 pounds), one of the most successful of the Can-Am League's finds, has a resume that includes 190 major league appearances including selection to the American League All-Star team in 2013 so the Rangers have signed Delabar to a minor league contract and will give him an opportunity in their major league spring training camp.

Martin, 28, has spent three of his eight professional seasons in Double-A, including last summer when he posted a sparkling 2.04 earned run average for 37 appearances (one start) for San Francisco's farm club in Richmond starting in June.

Baum is a 25-year-old infielder-outfielder setting a torrid hitting pace in the Australian League while Bollinger is a year older but no less successful in the same league as a left-handed pitcher.

For the second time this month, one of the Can-Am League's most successful players has given up a possible major league job to try a foreign league where the paycheck probably will be better.

This time it is southpaw Andrew Albers, who, ironically, is less than three months removed from his most successful major league stint when he won five of six decisions in nine appearances (six starts) for the Seattle Mariners.
