A couple of redemptive developments for guys that had been struggling:

 

-Alex Young has tallied 10 K's across his last two starts for Triple-A Reno (D'Backs), both W's in which he pitched 5 innings.  He's now 4-2 on the year with a 6.23 ERA - down from 7.32 in early May.

 

-Durbin Feltman is pitching to an ERA of 1.35 across his last 10 relief outings, totaling 13.1 IP for Double-A Portland (Red Sox), improving to 2-1 along the way and lowering his ERA from over 11.00 in early May down to 5.24 currently.  

 

-Sean Wymer gave up 2 runs in 6.2 IP last time out for Class A Lansing (Blue Jays), picking up his first W in over a month.  He's now 3-5 on the season with a 7.57 ERA.

Did some digging on the "appear to be out of baseball" guys. 
- Matt Purke, at least as late as May 28th, is/was playing for the Sugar Land Skeeters (managed by my hero Pete Incaviglia) in the independent Atlantic League. He still shows on the roster on their web page, but I can't find anything that verifies he's still there.
- Cam Warner did play for the Canberra Calvary in the Australian league last season (season looks like it ended in January). Even found a trading card on eBay of him with the Calvary. 

 

Everybody else appears to be confirmed retired except for Chad Huffman. I'm guessing he's retired, but he's still listed as a "free agent" on most tracking pages.

My old company had season tickets to the Skeeters. Its a cool stadium with cheap beer.

Not at present. LaGrave field was pretty much abandoned and overgrown with weeds. There is an attempt to bring them back though, but we'll see if happens.

They folded after the 2014 season, but there's hope here locally that the ballpark can get brought back up to speed and get a team (presumably another incarnation of the Cats) playing there either next year or the year after:
