Short break for Shreveport-Bossier

When Oakland designated Todd Walker for assignment Saturday, it marked the first time in a while the Shreveport-Bossier City area did not have an active player in the major leagues.

That could change shortly.

After Minnesota released Sidney Ponson, Scott Baker's name surfaced as a possible replacement for Saturday's game. Baker has pitched well at Triple-A Rochester, posting a 3.16 ERA and avoiding home runs, his biggest problem from last season.

Should Walker decide to call it quits, Baker is the area's best hope to carry the flag through the rest of the major league season.
