Spring Training has begun for some Atlantic Leaguers

Each spring, the Long Island Storm puts together a group largely made up of Atlantic Leaguers that competes in a series of spring training games against minor league squads in Florida.  This year, the team includes a Revs flavor with righty Nick Green, lefty Kris Regas and second baseman Andres Perez on the club, along with former York righty Jason Richardson who continues his comeback from Tommy John surgery.  Here’s an update on the Storm’s success:

It’s a 10-game schedule for the Storm, who are 3-1 so far.  They opened their slate with an 11-5 victory against the Blue Jays on Thursday.  Perez doubled and drove in a run in the win.

The tour continued with a 3-1 victory over the Phillies on Friday,  Green went three scoreless innings, and Regas allowed just one run in three.  So a combined one run in six innings by Revs pitchers.  I’m sure Mase would sign up for that every night.

They suffered their first loss yesterday, dropping an 8-4 decision to the Tigers, but in today’s game against the Marlins, bounced back with a 10-1 win in which Perez went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI.

The Storm will take on the Nationals each of the next two days, with their final four games scheduled against the Mets, Marlins, Cardinals, and a rematch against the Mets next Saturday to close out their tour.

The team is made up mostly of Long Island (Ray Navarrete among others), York, and Lancaster players.  A big thanks to Lancaster broadcaster Dave Collins for passing along game-by-game information.  He’s been in touch with Lancaster lefty Ross Peeples who is on the team.  Ross says they usually go about 7-3 on their tour, and they’re obviously off to a good start again this year.

So spring training is indeed underway for some of the Atlantic League!

    The Storm lost to a Washington Nationals squad 6-5 today, but Andres Perez had two more hits. Sounds like he’s found his stroke early this spring.

    After a 10-2 loss to a Nats squad yesterday, the Storm bounced back with an 8-3 win over a Mets team today. Kris Regas fired 4.0 scoreless. Storm are now 4-3 on the spring with three to go on their tour in Florida.
