LHP Joe Palumbo

Palumbo, a New York native, began his playing career for an amateur side, the Long Island Black Sox, where at the age of 18, he was scouted by the Texas Rangers. Then in 2013, the Rangers drafted Palumbo, thus beginning his professional career. In 2019, he was elevated to the AAA level, registering 108 strikeouts over 80.5 innings, and earning himself a spot as a Minor League All Star. Palumbo then made several appearances for the Texas Rangers through 2020, and after a brief stint with the Giants organization, he would yet again return to the Rangers in 2023, where he most recently played for the AAA Round Rock Express. 

RHP Parker Markel

Markel’s playing career began in 2010, when he was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays organization. He would remain in the farm system through the 2016 season, making appearances at several levels including the AAA Durham Bulls, and posting a 7-3 record in his final year as a member of the organization. Markel made his MLB debut in May of 2018, for the Seattle Mariners, facing off against the Boston Red Sox, and made his most recent MLB appearance out of the bullpen for the Oakland Athletics in 2022. Throughout his playing career, Markel has been a member of a number of other farm systems including the Padres, Angels and White Sox.
