Camden Signs Two More: Pitchers Mark Ion and Ramon Linares are the latest to agree to terms with the Camden Riversharks.

The Canadian-born Ion, 26, has spent the last two seasons in Camden. Last year, he was 4-2 with a 3.42 ERA.

Linares will turn 28 during Spring Training. He has previous AL experience with Newark, the Road Warriors and Riversharks.

He most recently pitched in the Atlantic League for Camden in 2005, when he was picked up by the Pittsburgh Pirates and sent to A-Ball.

King of the Hill: Jeremy Hill, recently released by the Los Angeles Dodgers, participated in a tryout over the past few days and reportedly has interest from several National League teams, as well as a few foreign countries.

I’m told he lost around 20 pounds, and was hitting 94-95 on the gun. There’s also a chance he returns to Newark, where he has an open invite to return.

Babula To AAA, Torrealba to AA: Shaun Babula, formerly of the Bears and Riversharks, has stuck with the Triple-A affiliate of the White Sox. Steve Torrealba, most recently a Duck, will start the season with Double-A Erie.

Also, Riversharks alums Kane Davis and Pedro Swann both stuck with the Triple-A affiliate of the Phillies.

Elder Re-Signs: In an inevitable move, the Somerset Patriots have officially re-signed P Dave Elder. This will be his fourth season in Somerset, coming off a 2006 campaign where he ended the season in the starting rotation. – Ashmore

Now Brad…do you think we could ever forget your traditional Shark & baseball balloons??? You weren’t working on your birthday, right? And little “SharkGirl” has school, right? So, it will be a surprise then, right? See you soon 😉

I think bringing me balloons and gifts is definitely and acceptable reason to miss school. But I may be in the minority on that one!
