Logan Mahon headed to Baltimore Orioles Organization

Hello all!  Great news coming out of the Grizzlies office this afternoon.  Gateway reliever Logan Mahon had his contract purchased by the Baltimore Orioles and will join their organization.  Excited for Logan and happy that he will be getting another opportunity in affiliated ball after appearing only five times for Rookie Ball Casper in 2011 with the Colorado Rockies.

Logan had a solid year for the Grizzlies out of the 'pen and showed the ability to get out both RH and LH batters.  He was drafted in the 22nd round by the Rockies in 2011 out of SEMO (first OVC player drafted that year) and is as deserving as anyone to get another shot.

The loss of Mahon will leave a void in the bullpen for the Grizzlies (he was the only LH arm last season), so don't be surprised if we see manager Phil Warren sign a couple LHP's in the coming months.  By the way, I had a chat with Phil earlier today and he's excited for next year and don't be surprised if there are a lot of players back from the 57-39 playoff team from 2012.  Much more to come on player signings in the coming months (things should pick up soon). 

Since it's not even December and we are still a little ways away from baseball season, I figured I'd post radio highlights from Game 1 of the 2012 playoffs to give you fans a little taste of baseball.  What a ride it was in 2012!
