The 2018 MLB postseason is underway and four different playoff teams have at least one former Chihuahua:

INF Yonder Alonso is the Cleveland Indians first baseman and played injury rehab games for the Chihuahuas at Southwest University Park in both 2014 and 2015.

LHP Ryan Buchter pitched in one game for the 2016 Chihuahuas and was on the Oakland Athletics AL Wild Card game roster.

RHP Adam Cimber (pictured above) has the most Chihuahuas experience out of any 2018 MLB postseason participant, having pitched for El Paso in 2015, 2016 and 2017. He is now part of the Indians bullpen.

RHP Edwin Jackson started three games for the Chihuahuas in 2016 after signing a minor league contract with the San Diego Padres. Jackson was on the Athletics AL Wild Card game roster.

RHP Shawn Kelley pitched a scoreless inning for Oakland in this year's AL Wild Card game. He appeared in two Chihuahuas games on injury rehab in 2015.

Pat Murphy is now the Milwaukee Brewers bench coach after managing the Chihuahuas for the team's first one and a half seasons.

LHP Tony Sipp was an inaugural Chihuahua before being acquired by the Houston Astros early in the 2014 season. He is still part of Houston's bullpen.

2019 Season Seats and Paw-tial Plans are available now by calling 915-533-BASE.
