CAMDEN, NJ – (PR) The Camden Riversharks announced some changing in the guard Tuesday night with the signings of pitcher Ben Davis and infielder Michael Thompson and the release of former major leaguer Damian Jackson.

Davis, 30, has eight years of major league experience, but Sharks fans know him best for his stop in Camden last season. Davis was the Sharks’ starting catcher last season before being picked up by the Los Angeles Dodgers. He went to spring training with the Baltimore Orioles this season before being released from Double-A Bowie. He’s back in Camden as a right handed reliever.

Thompson, 23, joins the Sharks after three years in Class-A with the Houston Astros and Kansas City Royals. In the past, he’s been slotted primarily at third base with limited time at first and second. He’s a career .228 hitter through 233 games.

Jackson, 35, hit .205 through 23 total games between the Ducks and Sharks. He, too, played the majority of his games at third but committed seven errors. – MA

What did Davis do? Convert from catching to pitching this year?

He pitched in the Delco League and came to Camden a few times to show off his stuff. He signed on as a reliever Tuesday.

Interesting article from the Delco Times a while back…

Interesting that both Steven Doetsch and Ben Davis pitched in the Riversharks-Bluefish game this morning. Both gave up a run in one inning of work but Davis appeared to have much better command than Doestch.

Evidently Carl Everett doesn’t know what he hurt. He told LIDuckfan that he hurt his calf and he told me Wednesday night that he hurt his Quad.

I’m not sure Carl Everett knows his own name half the time.
