  • The Rockford Aviators have signed former Chicago White Sox draft pick, Joey Wagman. Wagman was drafted in the 17th round by the White Sox in the 2013 MLB June Amateur Draft from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. After spending his first two years in the bullpen at Cal Poly, he dominated during his junior and senior seasons. He picked up 23 wins in those two years, striking out 182 in 220 innings. Aviators manager, James Frisbie spoke of his success, "Joey had an outstanding ERA at Cal Poly. He spent the first two seasons coming out of the bullpen, but really proved himself as a starter in his final two seasons." During his one season within the White Sox organization, Wagman posted a 3.57 ERA in 16 games. Over 22 innings, he struck out 28.
  • The American Association has unveiled the name for the newest addition to their league. The Joplin Blasters name and logo was announced during a press conference last week. Co-Owner and general manager, Shaw Suarez, says the name "Blasters", was a way to honour the area's mining tradition. The Blasters look to begin play at Joe Becker Stadium in 2015.
