Thanks! Can't wait to see him deal in PNC Park.
2 returns today, both sent out over 50 days ago:
Ben Rowen c/o Frisco RoughRiders in 63 days
I was worried that I wasn't going to get this one back because he was promoted to AAA three days after I sent to him, but looks like the Rangers' minor league forwarding system came through! Rowen has played 4 full seasons and has never posted an ERA over 1.98. This year, the submarine hurler has been perhaps the most dominant reliever in the minors (even ahead of CJ Riefenhauser). In AA and AAA, Rowen has surrendered just 4 ER over 59.2 innings (0.60 ERA) with 55 strikeouts and a WHIP of 0.90. He should be ready to join the big league club very soon.
Jim Leyland c/o Tigers in 54 days
Awesome surprise return from the Tigers' skipper. He is a three-time MOY (manager of the year) who won three straight division titles with the Pirates ('90, '91, '92), and is one of seven managers all-time to win a pennant in both leagues.
