    Tyler Olander made his minor league debut last night pitching a scoreless inning for the Blue Jays of the Gulf Coast League. Olander never played for Jim Penders and company, but he is still a UConn Husky in pro baseball.

    Last I saw he was signed to a minor league contract by the Padres.

    Minor Leagues: UHart’s Sean Newcomb tops among state’s prospects

    • 19. Carson Cross, UConn, RHP (Cardinals, Class A short-season): In his second season with State College, the 2015 14th-round pick has gone 5-5 with a 3.25 ERA in 13 starts.

    • 18. Patrick Ruotolo, UConn, RHP (Giants, Class A short-season): Surprisingly fell to the 27th round of this year’s draft, but has been very impressive with Salem-Keizer, posting a 0.78 ERA in his first 23 professional innings.

    • 14. Greg Nappo, Madison/UConn, LHP (Marlins, Triple-): Second season in New Orleans started terribly (5.85 ERA into late June), but lefty has settled down as Zephyrs’ long man and is 5-6, 4.63 ERA in 26 outings.

    • 10. Vinny Siena, Woodbridge/UConn, 2B (Mets, High-A): Earned trip to South Atlantic League all-star game before being promoted to St. Lucie, where he’s continued his consistent season (.269, 10 steals in 376 at-bats between two stops).

    • 8. L.J. Mazzilli, Greenwich/UConn, 2B (Mets, Double-A): Lee’s son earned first Triple-A promotion in early August, but was sent back to Binghamton after 48 at-bats. Overall, .238 with five homers in 400 at-bats this year between two stops.

    • 5. John Andreoli, UConn, OF (Cubs, Triple-A): After horrific start (.207 through June 14) has really picked it up at Iowa, raising his average 48 points to go with 12 homers and 37 stolen bases. Still could get a September call-up to the Cubbies.

    • 2. Anthony Kay, UConn, LHP (Mets, Class A short-season): Mets’ second pick (No. 31 overall) in 2016 draft took until last minute to sign for $1.1 million (about $800,000 below slot) and isn’t pitching for Brooklyn because of heavy college workload this season. Mets’ No. 9 overall prospect, per mlb.com could be in bigs within two years.

    George Springer finishes Astros' season as literal every-day player

    >>In his third big league season, Springer shed the label of being injury-prone. When he batted leadoff in the Astros' 8-1 loss to the Angels in Sunday's season finale, the 27-year-old right fielder became one of three major leaguers to appear in each of his team's regular-season games this year, joining Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar and Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop.

    The seventh player in Astros history to log 162 games in a season, Springer is the first since Carlos Lee in 2007. His 744 plate appearances were the most in the majors and weren't too far off from his total from his first two seasons combined (796).<<

    Fun Fact: Rajai Davis was committed to play for Huskies, but then signed with Pittsburgh Pirates (38th Round, 2001) and the rest is history. twitter.com/UConn/status/7…


    Ok, Rajai Davis was never a Husky, but he was an Avery Point Pointer. Still, I never knew that he was slated to play baseball in Storrs before the major leagues came calling. By the way, my baseball fan of a wife has over the years has been a huge Rajai Davis fan. She'll love hearing about this.

    With his homer in the 7th game to tie it up, Rajai Davis is being written up by the local media.

    Hartford Courant

    Rajai's at-bat in Game 7 a perfect illustration of his persistence to succeed
