Strick Signs With Fish
Closer Scott Strickland, who last year set an Albuquerque professional baseball record with 32 saves for the ‘Topes, has signed a Minor League contract with the Florida Marlins that includes an invitation to Major League Spring Training camp.
The right-hander came just one save from tying the Pacific Coast League record of 33 set by Colorado Springs’ Ryan Speier in 2007.
Of course, the biggest news of the day is that the Dodgers have traded Juan Pierre to the White Sox for two players to be named by January 7, 2010. That means that, barring another outfielder acquisition, former Isotope Jason Repko will have a very good chance to win the fourth outfielder’s job next spring.
