Lefty Chris Nunn, who pitched in 15 games for CC and Fresno last year before getting released, was signed by the Rangers after a video went viral on twitter showing him throwing 97-99 in a workout. He's apparently pain-free after a left hip problem affected his mechanics for several years. Nice story.

Daz Cameron outplayed incumbent Jacoby Jones with an impressive .360/.448/.720 spring but will still start the year at AAA Toledo (where he finished 2018 playing in 15 games).

Jason Martin got the call up for the Pirates today.  The Cole trade is looking like a win for both sides.

We stole Cole.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

Good story in the local paper about former farmhand Gilberto Celistino.   He got sent to Minnesota in the Ryan Pressley trade last year.

Nothing worthwhile comes without pain, ask any Astros fan.

Jacob Nix, who had agreed terms with the Astros in 2014 then did not sign due to the Aiken kerfluffle, is now with the Padres in the AFL.

Well, he may not be with the Padres much longer after a homeowner tazed Nix breaking in through his doggie door:
