Welcome back, Zach

Over on Peter Abraham's blog there's welcome news for the Yankees and perhaps the Thunder: Zach Kroenke will be back.

Kroenke, a left-hander from Lincoln, Neb., was returned today by the Florida Marlins, who selected him in the Rule 5 Draft.

He split last season between Trenton and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, posting a 7-0 record with an excellent 1.17 WHIP and a sparkling .190 BAA in 53.2 innings.

There's a good chance he'll be back in Trenton sometime this season. He was one of three members of the Thunder taken in the Rule 5. Reegie Corona and Jason Jones were the other two.

Jorge Vazquez update: The future Thunder first baseman went 1-for-3 last night with a run scored in Team Mexico's 8-2 loss to Team Korea in the World Baseball Classic. Team Mexico takes on Team Cuba at 11 p.m. this evening, so keep your eyes peeled for Vazquez.
