BALBINO FUENMAYOR KEEPS ON HITTING
Indy Baseball Chatter by Bob Wirz

Balbino Fuenmayor seems to hit wherever he goes.
The corner infielder, who won both Can-Am League Most Valuable Player honors and the Independent Player of the Year award (Baseball America) last season, has homered, scored four times and gone 4-for-11 (.364) in his first three career games at a level above Class A.
While not playing on opening night for Kansas City's Texas League franchise in Northwest Arkansas (Springdale), the 25-year-old made up for it the next three games in Double-A.

GARCIA'S STRUGGLES PAY OFF WITH PHILLIES
Independent Baseball Insider - by Bob Wirz

Luis Garcia's experiences on his way to his current position as one of the better bets out of the Philadelphia Phillies' bullpen may serve as a good message to any struggling baseball player.

The 28-year-old knew baseball was not working for him when he walked away at the end of 2010 after a few years of struggling in the Los Angeles Dodgers and Washington Nationals farm systems.

DELABAR STUNNED WITH SUDDEN DEMOTION
Indy Baseball Chatter by By Bob Wirz

Steve Delabar is one of those baseball players who has had to battle throughout his professional career, overcoming being released early on and suffering a career-threatening injury when he was in the Can-Am League (Brockton, MA) in 2009, and has smelled the roses by being named to the American League All-Star Game roster in 2013. But he was not prepared for what happened to him Thursday.

BRESLOW ENJOYING GREAT SPRING
Indy Baseball Chatter by By Bob Wirz

While Andrew Albers and Jon Velasquez will have to wait for their opportunity to step onto a regular-season major league mound, it does not appear that will be the case for Craig Breslow (pictured) or Steve Delabar .

The left-handed Breslow and righty Delabar had sizeable questions hanging over them entering spring training, but it appears their problems are in the past.

THIS ONETIME CAN-AM PLAYER WAS PREPARED WHEN HIS PLAYING CAREER ENDED
Indy Baseball Chatter by By Bob Wirz

This is the time of year when plenty of baseball players are sweating it out, and not just to get in shape. They are trying to get--or keep--a job, whether it is in the major leagues or with an Independent team.

Nathan Tomaszewski was one of them a year ago, but now the onetime Can-Am League infielder (Newark Bears, 2013) could be the poster boy for preparing himself for the time when a professional team says his services are no longer needed.

NICE, LOW EARNED RUN AVERAGES
Indy Baseball Chatter by By Bob Wirz

How is this for putting up solid numbers in major league spring training camps? The highest earned run average among the four former Can-Am League pitchers is a handsome 2.45.

Luis Garcia (Newark) has two saves for Philadelphia while sharing the team lead in appearances (five), and has not allowed a run while giving up three hits in 4.2 innings. Andrew Albers (Quebec) has not been charged with a run while allowing three hits in 2.2 innings over three appearances for Toronto.
