Familiar faces in new places

Sept. 1 is the day numerous Triple-A baseball players look forward to because of roster expansion.

Instead of a 25-man roster, major league teams are allowed to carry 40 players from Sept. 1 until the end of the season. While looking through the transactions this weekend, I saw some names from the past who are headed to the bigs.

Take Brian Myrow. The former Louisiana Tech slugger is up with the San Diego Padres after bouncing around a couple of teams' minor league chains. Former Shreveport Captain Cody Ransom is up with the Houston Astros after spending the better part of two seasons at Triple-A Round Rock.

Finally, another player with local ties is heading somewhere new while retaining his prospect tag. Former Southwood standout Michael Aubrey is going to play in the Arizona Fall League for a second time this year, as the Cleveland Indians have selected him to take part in the most prestigious fall league for MLB prospects.
