The 2012-13 off-season
has certainly been a busy one for the
Blue Jays with headline-stealing trades turning the team into the
favorite in the American League East.
But, there are several other former Fisher Cats who will work to
a new organization when pitchers and catchers report starting February
10. Here's a look at where some old friends will
spend spring training this year.
Travis d'Arnaud - Traded
to the New York Mets for National
League Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey on December 17. Will
likely be fighting for a big league job
in Mets camp.
Zach Stewart - Traded by
the Red Sox to the Pirates in
November. He'll be a contender for the
Pirates rotation to begin the season along with New Hampshire
native Jeff Locke.
Henderson Alvarez - Part of
the big trade with Miami
in November, slated as the team's No. 2 starter heading into spring
Mike McDade - Claimed
off waivers by the Cleveland Indians
Brian Jeroloman - Signed
a minor league deal with the
Indians and received an invitation to big league spring training next
Yan Gomes - A third
former Fisher Cat now with the Tribe,
the Blue Jays traded Gomes to Cleveland to bolster the bullpen in early
Adeiny Hechavarria - In
line to be the Marlins everyday
shortstop in 2013.
Jake Marisnick -
Would've been the Fisher Cats starting
center fielder. Instead, one of the top
prospects in the Marlins system after the big November trade.
Shaun Marcum -
Injury-riddled pitcher elected free agency
but is still weighing his offers for 2013.
Mark Sobolewski - Picked
up by the Twins in the minor league
phase of the Rule V draft. Could face
his old Fisher Cats teammates when New Hampshire
visits New Britain
Danny Farquhar - Added
to the Mariners 40-man roster last
Chris Jakubauskas -
Short-time Fisher Cat now a member of
the Milwaukee Brewers.
Michael Dubee -
Mid-season signing by the Jays last season
now belongs in the Tigers organization.
