• Culiacán might be releasing 3B Ray Martinez soon because his poor performance with, Martinez has a. .199 BA but he has committed 12 errors to lead all third basemen, however Jorge Vazquez who is recovering from kidney problems, has been feeling not well lately. Could be their new 3B..They are also trying to convince Rodrigo Lopez to pitch some innings and boost their chances to make it through the play offs.

• Francisco Campos will try to make it to MLB when this next spring training , Pittsburgh Pirates has promised him to take a look on him, but also Phillies , Florida and Cincinnatti has expressed their interest on him as well.

• Obregon Yaquis kept on shaking the tree, by releasing the front office manager, Bobby Diaz yesterday, in attempt to high up the low team`s moral, that someone says he was the cause for it.
Diaz interferes too much on the dogout with managers and players, and there are rumors of Bundy being up to the top of his head because of that, let`s let time tell us if the situation were right or wrong.

• Jesse Gutierrez becomes the 25th player to hit 3 home runs in one game, last night against Obregon and playing for Navojoa, earlier in the season Luis Cruz of Navojoa and Ben Francisco of Culiacan did the trick.
A product of Saint Mary`s University in Texas, was a 20th draft choice by Cincinnatti in 2001 and has never played higher than AA ball.

• Doug Devore hit a monster shot last night off Mayos pitching, clearing all three right field fences surrounding Obregon`s Tomas Oroz Stadium, a plus 450 feet shot.

• Marco Antonio Vazquez the Diablos winningest manager ( 779 – 507 ), was announced as the team new manager for the LMB upcoming season.
He last skipped the Diablos back in 1999 and was practically retired form baseball, last year Tijuana tried to hire him up, but he decided to manage Caborca on the North of Sonora rookie league, where he lost championship
series against Magdalena.
