Barnstormers Make Two Moves: The Lancaster Barnstormers’ front office has been very busy the past few weeks. The ever popular Jason Guarente says the team released Jordan Herr, son of former manager Tom Herr, and signed outfielder Ryan Stevenson to take his place.

Stevenson is in his third year of pro ball, all with the independent Golden League.

Swindle DFA’ed: Usually Septembers are a good time for players to get called up because of expanded rosters. R.J. Swindle had the opposite luck this weekend.

The former Newark Bears arm was designated for assignment by the Philadelphia Phillies Sunday. Swindle, who played for the Bears last season before inking with the Phils, was 0-0 with a 7.71 ERA and four strikeouts in three games this season. This was the first time he’s been in the bigs.

Tanaka Out: The York Revolution have placed fan favorite Kaz Tanaka on the inactive list. Tanaka, in his second year with the club, was only batting .226. – SS

Actually Swindle was sent down to the minors about two months ago. The most recent move was taking him off the 40-man roster to make way for Tad Iguchi.

True. Again, just going off the wire release. But, valid point.

3. Newark - September 8, 2008

Kaz- GREAT guy but wouldn’t start on most girl’s fast-pitch teams.

Bears lack of relief might let York win 2nd half. Bears have blown late leads at least 5-6 times this half. FRUSTRATING!!

Fan favorite Walter Young traded by the Sussex Skyhawks to the Sioux City Explorers at the end of July.
Too late for that interview.

You know, I was supposed to hit up Hal Lanier for Walter’s information, but never did once the season started. Figured it wasn’t much of a story anymore.
