Losing players is a way of life for teams in independent baseball leagues and the Laredo Lemurs are no different, as another one of their pitchers is headed to a major league farm club. Fabian Williamson is the latest to sign with a big league team as he is now headed for the Cincinnati Reds single-A team in Bakersfield, CA. This season the big lefty had a 6-2 record with a 3.42 ERA. Williamson brought power to mound striking out better than a batter per inning. This marks the second player to have his contract bought out in the past week, as outfielder Sawyer Carroll was purchased by the Diamondbacks, also pitcher Mark Serrano was also picked up this season by Arizona.
More bad news from the lemurs as they have placed Jimmy Mojica on the disabled list. Laredo's shortstop has been dealing with a nagging injuries and was removed from Fridays game after straining his hamstring. The lemurs did pick up a pair of players today one familiar and one new. Stephen Douglas was re-acquired coming for the Lincoln Saltdogs. He played in 61 games for Laredo last season hitting .249 with six home runs and 37 runs driven in. Also making their way to the gateway city is Balbino Fuenmayor, out of the Frontier League where he was hitting .322 with 11 homeruns.
