The major league debut for 2013 Vancouver Canadians shortstop Dawel Lugo has been put on hold. The 23 year-old from Baní, Perava in the Dominican Republic was called up by the Detroit Tigers at the beginning of the week. He was summoned from Triple-A Toledo after third baseman Jeimer Candelario went on the 10-day disabled list with a wrist injury.
A couple of 2014 Vancouver Canadians were back together again briefly. 2013-2014 C’s left-hander Jairo Labourt and shortstop Franklin Barreto were reunited when the Oakland Athletics claimed Labourt earlier this spring but Labourt returned to the Detroit Tigers on a minor league deal.
Miguel Castro got his first call-up of 2017 with the Baltimore Orioles last week, showing glimpses of the immense potential that saw him reach the major leagues at the age of 20 two years ago.
The Detroit Tigers are expecting big things from former Vancouver Canadians pitcher Daniel Norris in 2017.
