They lost him on the waiver wire to the New York Yankees, but now he's back in yellow and black: the flagship colors of the Salt Lake Bees. Wade LeBlanc has been re-signed to a minor league contract and is off to Utah to stretch out as a starter again.
Over nine starts and 53.2 IP, lefty LeBlanc put up a 3.69 ERA, kept the walks to a minimum, and pitched to a 3.34 ERA on the road, away from the bandbox of Salt Lake. (That's not easy to do!)
A little more depth, a little more accountability, and the third best Angels minor league performer in May is back. Anticipate little, and maybe you'll get more than you expect.
Welcome back, Wade the White!
