AMERICAN ASSOCIATION of Independent Professional Baseball
"The Lincoln Saltdogs announced that the contract of LHP David Quinowski (pictured) was purchased by the Baltimore Orioles Friday. The 26-year old went 3-2 with 39 strikeouts in 40 2/3 innings in relief last season in his first Independent baseball campaign. He was acquired by the Saltdogs in a trade, along with OF Matt Forgatch from Gary SouthShore in July." Another day, another signing from a indy team I've never heard of. Honey Badger GM gonna honey badger, I suppose.
