Tuesday Sports News and Notes…

By on July 30th, 2013

A former Gator baseball player gets a big league call up, a former Gator receiver signs with an NFL team and more in our Tuesday Sports News and Notes…

**Former Gator pitcher Nick Maronde has been called up by the Los Angeles Angels.   The lefty has been called up to the big leagues a couple of other times as well but has always been sent back down to the minors.

** Former Gator wide receiver Omarius Hines has signed a free agent deal with the Green Bay Packers; he had been signed and cut by Baltimore previously.

** In MLB action, Tampa Bay reclaims first place in the AL East with a 2-1 win over Boston; the Rays begin a series at home against Arizona while the Red Sox host Seattle.  Atlanta beats Colorado 9-8 and Miami loses to the NY Mets 6-5.

** The Rays have acquired reliever Jesse Crain from the Chicago White Sox for either cash or a player to be named later.   The MLB trading deadline is tomorrow.

** Tune into Sportscene later today at noon on ESPN 850 WRUF when we will talk to Gator football special teams coordinator Jeff Choate at 12:05pm.
