Happy Birthday, Warner Madrigal

Happy Birthday, Warner Madrigal

Photo by Jonathan Ferrey/ Warner Madrigal turns 36 today Happy birthday to Warner Madrigal — the former Texas Rangers reliever turns 36 today. You may not remember the Warner Madrigal Experience...a righthanded hitter and thrower, Madrigal was originally signed by the Anaheim Angels out of San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic, and he spent the early part of the 21st century as an outfielder in their system. After spending several seasons not hitting much, the Angels converted him to pitching in 2006, and he spent 2006 and 2007 as a reliever in their system. After the 2007...

It was also the subject of much humor when Kenny Rogers (the pitcher) came up in the Rangers’ system and made his various departures and returns, and was the source...

Why? I have no idea. MLB has suspended spring training and the start of the season. While MLB has said it is only suspending the first two weeks of the season so far, with the CDC recommending a ban on gatherings of 50 people or more for the next 8 weeks, it seems unlikely we will have any baseball before June.
