Dugger to Make MLB Start. Via MLB’s Dawn Klemish, former Texas Tech Red Raider baseballer Robert Dugger will make his MLB debut for the Miami Marlins today:

β€œIt’s what you always dream about,” said Dugger, Miami’s No. 24 prospect per MLB Pipeline. β€œI always wanted to be a Major League baseball player, and the time has come. It’s just … I don’t even really have any words for it. I’m numb, I’m anxious to get out there and pitch and just get those nerves out.”

Rambo at Spur. A-J Media’s Don Williams spoke with linebacker / safety and California transfer Evan Rambo, who is looking to play at that spur position that’s a hybrid of linebacker and safety:

That’s music to the ears of Evan Rambo, a rangy linebacker type who transferred in from California. New defensive coordinator Keith Patterson has piqued the interest of Tech fans with the Spur position β€” what it is, how it’s used, who will play it β€” and Rambo will be one of the first in line to audition for the job.

β€œThat’s an exciting position that I think fits my player type the best,” Rambo said. β€œI used to play safety, moved to inside linebacker and played outside linebacker last year and so that Spur position encompasses that outside linebacker/safety kind of role, being able to play down in the box while still being able to run with guys.”

Miscellaneous . . .
