    Default Professional fmr. Jackrabbits

    Rather then cycle through different threads for the professionals I thought we could just put them all here. As of right now there is 3 former Jackrabbits playing affiliated baseball.

    Caleb Thielbar
    Majors
    Minnesota Twins

    Blake Treinen
    AAA-Syracuse
    Washington Nationals

    Layne Somsen
    Low-A-Dayton
    Cincinnati Reds

    Thielbar- after some so-so outings, and a W, he had a solid 2 inning, no hits, 3 K appearance yesterday. Contrary to popular belief that he would start the season in AAA, not only did he make the club, but has pitched quite often for the Twins so far this season.

    Treinen- After an eye opening spring training, where most scouts, and National beat writers believed he would have made the team if he had been on the 40 man roster, he made his AAA debut, going 5 innings 2 un-earned runs, scouts reported him hitting 97-98 most of the game, only through about 70 pitches as they are stretching him out after using him as a reliever in spring training

    Somsen- Has appeared in 2 outings for Dayton, going 2 innings, with 4K's and 1BB.


    If there are any other former Rabbits playing independent ball or in Japan, or wherever feel free to post updates about it. hopefully a few more get drafted this year. milb.com is a really good site to keep updated stats on Treinen and Somsen.

    Thielbar- after some so-so outings, and a W, he had a solid 2 inning, no hits, 3 K appearance tomorrow. Contrary to popular belief that he would start the season in AAA, not only did he make the club, but has pitched quite often for the Twins so far this season.

    Treinen- After an eye opening spring training, where most scouts, and National beat writers believed he would have made the team if he had been on the 40 man roster, he made his AAA debut, going 5 innings 2 un-earned runs, scouts reported him hitting 97-98 most of the game, only through about 70 pitches as they are stretching him out after using him as a reliever in spring training

    Good idea JoeBoo. Question: Have you thought about taking your clairvoyance to Vegas? If not, can I call you from there every night before a Twins' game?

    I am actually heading to Vegas tomorrow or yesterday. That is what I get when I write these, while doing 7 other things at the same time.

    Put some down on the Twins.


    Layne Somsen went another inning tonight, pitched the 9th in a 4-0 win, struck out two, gave up his first hit. Six strikeouts in three innings. WHIP if .5. Keep it up!!

    IIUC, Tyler is reporting that Blake Treinen has been called up and is in the Nationals clubhouse for the game today.

    He got BJ UPton on a grounder in his first out, gave up a hit to Freddie Freeman and then struck out Chris Johnson with a slider that F.P. Santangelo, the Nat' color guy, had "hair on it." Now facing the red-hot Justin Upton.
