BREAKING: Elmo rhymes with Reno, Rowland now a Pirate
Ah, you gotta love social media. It has given us two pieces of news on former Osprey today.
First, we wish the best of luck to Robby Rowland (2010-11), who was traded today to the Pittsburgh Pirates, allowing them to keep Rule V pick Brett Lorin, who was assigned to Double-A Mobile. Rowland announced the trade on his Facebook page, but his brother, former Osprey catcher Richie, also hinted at it on a status update several hours earlier.
Secondly, also announced on his Facebook profile, former Osprey infielder Jake Elmore (2008) is headed to Triple-A Reno. He’ll join at least one former Osprey there as well in utility player Rusty Ryal (2005).
