Look For Jorge Marban At Sox Spring Training

Marban Gets The Final Out
He's pitching his heart out for the Perth Heat in the Australian Baseball League playoffs. But, he's really looking forward to being in Fort Myers in a week or so. Jorge Marban, a 25-year old right-handed reliever was signed to a minor league contract by the Red Sox in December. They liked the way the former Ranger prospect performed in the ABL regular season. Last night, Marban got the win in a 5-3 Perth victory over the Adelaide Bite (how could you not be a fan of the Bite?). Marban threw three innings, giving up just one hit and one walk—while striking out seven. Perth prevailed in the 10th inning and forced a decisive Game 3. Marban may be a factor again—both Down Under and in Florida.
