OTTAWA'S ETHAN ELIAS TO JOIN DIAMONDBACKS
Champions RHP purchased by Arizona

Ottawa - Less than a month after being acquired by the Ottawa Champions in a trade with the Frontier League's Normal Cornbelters, RHP Ethan Elias is on the move again, this time with an eye on Major League Baseball.
The 21-year-old from Entwistle, Alberta, has been purchased by the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. Elias is the third Can-Am League player purchased by the Diamondbacks organization this off-season, after Rockland RHP Joe Donino and Quebec RHP Danny Moskovits.

Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

Start looking for former Can-Am League stars Chris Colabello and Jon Velasquez in spring training box scores. They will be there, at least periodically.
Velasquez (pictured) spent the 2011 and 2012 seasons as a starting pitcher for the Rockland Boulders (combined 14-13 record). Now the 29-year-old is an excited non-roster invitee in the Mets' major league camp.

WILL LITTLE NAMED FULL-TIME BIG LEAGUE UMPIRE
Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

It was not exactly with tidal-wave impact when the news trickled in that three umpires had been promoted to fulltime status in the major leagues, yet it represented one more very important milestone for the Can-Am League. In fact, for the entire Independent Baseball world.
One of the trio promoted to this level--and to an annual six-figure-plus-benefits job--was Will Little, who came out of the Can-Am League in 2007 and worked his way all the way up the baseball ladder.

LHP Andrew Albers, Toronto (Quebec); 1B-OF Chris Colabello, Toronto (Worcester and Nashua); RHP Steve Delabar, Toronto (Brockton); RHP Luis Garcia (pictured), Philadelphia (Newark) and RHP Jon Velasquez, New York-NL (Rockland).

PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL RETURNS TO COOPERSTOWN
Rockland, New Jersey to play at Doubleday Field on July 17

For the first time in over six years, professional baseball returns to historic Doubleday Field in Cooperstown, N.Y. when the Rockland Boulders host the New Jersey Jackals on July 17, 2015 for a 2:00 pm start. The first-ever “Cooperstown Can-Am Classic” will see last season’s top two teams battle it out in the first professional baseball game in Cooperstown since 2009.

COLABELLO'S STATUS TO BE KNOWN SOON

This could be one of the biggest weeks in longtime Can-Am League star Chris Colabello’s baseball life since the 10-day window after he was designated for assignment by his new team, Toronto, will expire.

This means the 31-year-old first baseman-outfielder will either become a free agent or have his contract picked up by another major league team.
