Here’s a tidbit to distract you from today’s game in Arlington — Elliott Johnson and Jon Weber are playing ball together again. They are both on the Mazatlan Mexican Pacific League team this year.
There’s this piece from a Venados de Mazatlan press release (Google translation)
After four wins in as many preseason games, Mazatlán Deer trained on Monday at the Teodoro Mariscal Stadium attended by Jon Weber, Elliot Johnson, Matt Clark, Freddy Sandoval and Rogelio Noris.
Weber and Clark took his first practice with the team, while Elliot Johnson coached for the second time as Freddy Sandoval, who is indeed fully recovered from surgery on his right wrist which was submitted by the organization of the Angels Los Angeles.
Weber's arrival was noted in a Mexican baseball blog called Baseball Mexico.
Just exactly how this works out with Weber's suspension we can only speculate.
In the meantime, Elliot's wife, Nicole. and son, Blake are traveling with him.
Good luck and have fun down there!
