If his mother were ever to make an appearance at LGT, this would be the time...

If you've been paying close attention, you may have noticed by now that the Indians have a guy in camp named Travis Banwart.

Didn't know? Don't worry. Ten days ago, this would have been news to me, too.

So, who is Travis Banwart?

Signed in December 2013 to a minor league deal, Banwart had spent his entire professional career in the Oakland organization. He spent parts of five seasons in AAA but still hasn't made his MLB debut. He has, however, pitched 125 innings or more in six consecutive seasons.
