Spring Training Recap: Days Nine and Ten
A couple of reminders:
1. I'll be in Tampa for spring training from March 31-April 4. While there, I'll be writing, blogging, tweeting, taking pictures and recording video. I'll try to get as much information as I can about what the final roster will look like before the Thunder take the field against Erie on April 8.
2. I will host my second Web chat of the spring, on this very blog, on Tuesday, March 16, at 1 p.m. I'll be taking questions about the Thunder, the Eastern League and all of Minor League Baseball. Mark it down.
Former Thunder category:
Because the Yankees were rained out, the leaders here are Jose Tabata and Kanekoa Texeira. Tabata, a Thunder outfielder in 2008, went for 1-for-4 with a triple for the Pirates. Texeira, who was invaluable in the Thunder's pen last season, pitched a scoreless frame for the Mariners. Texeira was selected by Seattle in this year's Rule 5 Draft.
Other former Trentonites seeing action were:
Austin Jackson (DET): 1-for-3
Randy Ruiz (TOR): 0-for-3
Ian Kennedy (ARI) 3 IP, 2 H, BB, 2 K
