Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

Peter Mooney gives the Can-Am League six players in spring training camps, and the Jackals also will be represented by veteran lefty bullpen specialist Craig Breslow, who got an invitation when he signed a minor league pact with Toronto, which could become his eighth major league team starting one year after his time in New Jersey in 2004.

The Connecticut native has pitched in 576 major league games with a 23-30 record, eight saves and a 3.45 earned run average.

MOONEY GIVES THE UNDERSIZED A BOOST AS HE HEADS TO MARLINS CAMP

If Peter Mooney can hustle his way onto the Miami Marlins roster it would strike a bright note for both position players and the undersized athlete as well as delivering another nice recommendation for the Can-Am League.

The shortstop for New Jersey in the 2015 season has made it one step closer to the promised land of the major leagues by becoming an official non-roster invitee for the Marlins. That in itself says quite a lot since the 27-year-old is listed anywhere from 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8 on various statistical reports.

FUENMAYOR'S BAT SIZZLES, LEADING EVERYONE IN CARIBBEAN SERIES
Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

One hitter has stood out among all of the players swinging bats as the end-of-winter jewel, the Caribbean Series, heads into its semifinal phase in Guadalajara, Mexico, Wednesday.

That player is former Quebec kingpin Balbino Fuenmayor, the 28-year-old bruiser from Venezuela who still is trying to get his very first day in the major leagues. The first baseman is on the Triple-A Syracuse roster, and surely will get some type of look in his first season with the Washington Nationals.

Along with many other free agents, it is not known where longtime Can-Am star first baseman Chris Colabello will be playing baseball this season.

Colabello is still in the news, however, with both Chris and his onetime baseball-playing dad, Lou, featured in a new documentary about Italian-Americans in the sport and with a scholarship in his name for someone at his old high school in Milford, Mass.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, SALINA TO VISIT CAN-AM LEAGUE IN 2018
Seventh straight season Can-Am clubs face non-league opponents

Durham, N.C. -- Can-Am League clubs will again host a national team from the Dominican Republic, as well as the Kansas-based Salina Stockade, as the league finalized its slate of opponents for the 2018 season on Wednesday at the league meetings in Montreal.

The two traveling teams will both play one three-game series against each league member between June 8-28. As with in previous seasons, the games and their statistics will count in league records.

JACKALS' STOCK FIFTH CAN-AM HURLER IN BIG-LEAGUE CAMP
Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

Robert Stock, who came out of USC with better catching credentials, is the fifth Can-Am League pitcher to get an invitation to major league spring training.

The righthander, a two-way player for three seasons with the Trojans, moved to the mound after three seasons catching in the Cardinals' chain where he had been a second round draft choice in '09. But it was not until four more seasons had passed until the Westlake, Calif., native really got heavy mound work in 2016 while in the bullpen of the New Jersey Jackals.
