  1. Andrew Cashner traded to the Red Sox.
  2. Alex is now listed as a wildcard entry in the ATP Challenger in Winnetka, Illinois, and is scheduled to face Aussie Max Purcell (ATP ranking 264) on Tuesday.
  3. Alex Young is scheduled to make his MLB debut tonight for the Diamondbacks in a start at San Francisco.
  4. In other Cancun news, Nick Chappell surveyed past Karl Poling (Princeton), 5-7, 6-4, 6-2. Reese Stalder and Eduardo Roldan were also scheduled today to play in separate matches with their non-Frog partners. (The web scoreboard is unavailable. I suspect it's on the short bus ride from Cancun to the impressive Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, which the Fractal Frog visited in the early 90s.) In results that I think none of us will endorse, our Czech signees, Tadeas and Tomas, were both bounced from singles in their tournament in Pardubice, Czech Republic, yesterday.
  5. Several Frogs are scheduled to play in this week's Futures tournament in Cancun. Eduardo Roldan won his first-round qualifier, but lost to the qualifying tournament's top seed, Alejandro Mendoza of Bolivia. But the main draw of 32 has three Frogs: second-seeded Gerardo Lopez Villasenor, fourth-seeded Nick Chappell, and unseeded Reese Stalder. All four Frogs are in the doubles tournament. Eduardo is paired with fellow Mexican Juan Ignacio Batalla Diez. Reese is paired with fellow American Grey Hamilton (Ole Miss). Jerry is paired with... fellow Frog Nick Chappell! Jerry and Nick are seeded second. TCU's Czech signees are also active this week, at Pardubice in the Czech Republic. Tadeas Paroulek is in the main draw, but Tomas Jirousek will need to defeat Timo Stodder (Tennessee) tomorrow to qualify.
  6. Cam Norrie is facing Kevin Anderson this morning at Queen's Club in London. Cam started off the match with a break and love hold. Things have gotten more difficult since, but he's still up a break and serving at 3-2 in the first set. Cam didn't give up the break and took the first set, 6-4! The game is now on The Tennis Channel. Cam fought off several break points to even the second set at 2-2. A mention of Cam's TCU connection followed. Still on serve at 4-all in the second set. 5-5. 5-6. Cam needs a hold to get to a tiebreak. Hold achieved. 6-6 and they're into a tiebreak. 5-7 tiebreak. Third set coming up. Cam was just broken for the first time today and it's now 2-3 in the third set. Anderson follows with an easy love hold. 2-4. Hold by Cam. 3-4. Hold by Anderson. 3-5. Easy hold for Cam to get to 4-5, but he has to break Anderson to stay in the match. And that's the match. "Nice showing from Cam Norrie," says the announcer, but he came up short. 6-4, 6-7, 4-6.
  7. The Orioles called last week's trip to Arlington the "Cashner Trip."
  8. Gerardo Lopez Villasenor is into the semis in Cancun.
  9. Gerardo Lopez Villasenor won his first-round match in Cancun. Eduardo Roldan played the top seed in Cancun and did not win. Ali Gray made the main draw at the Surbiton Challenger as a lucky loser, but lost his first-round match. No sign of Cam Norrie there.
  10. The Diamondbacks sent Stefan Crichton back down to AAA Reno.
  11. Frogs are scheduled to face Oklahoma State Wednesday in the late game with a scheduled start of 7:30 pm CDT. Kansas took two from KState today to compete a series sweep and drop the Frogs to the tournament 6-seed.
  12. Bobby Knight tweeted that Gray took a medical timeout. Bleeding.
