Also, Pete Incavigilia has been named manager of the new Laredo team, which starts play in 2012, I think in the American Association.

I was actually mildly surprised they cut McKenna. He's a great kid, they loved his makeup and effort. He was the classic late draft pick....a kid the area scout got to know and really spoke highly of, had a few low level minor league skills and a huge heart, and they needed a middle infielder in the GCL in 2009....so you pop that kid and give him a ton of stories to tell his grand kids.

In the end, there's a slightly better version of him in Lakeland right now....Ryan Soares, which meant the end of his run with the Tigers.

The older Bascik is the pitching coach while his son, the younger Bacsik, is the pitcher. Just thought I would clarify that a little bit.

Thanks for the clarification, I didn't realize it was a father-son combo. Speaking of sons, I noticed former Tigers catcher Rich Rowland's son Richie is catching for the Traverse City Beach Bums.

Brent Clevlen was with the Wichita Wingnuts. His contract was just purchased by the Reds. He's at AAA Louisville now.

Edit: Just noticed in the press release that Wichita also released Anthony Shawler. Best of luck to him moving forward.
