Reportedly it's an MLB first.
In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, "I have finished." There is a lot of satisfaction in that - Fred Lebow

I believe that Tyler is the first CPF adoptee to have Foley's name a burger after him -


This week’s stuffed burger, the Tyler Austin Taco Burger! For each one ordered $1 will be donated to the the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation! #TheRightStuff

The kid has a broken foot and will be out for the next six weeks. Based on that, he probably starts the season in extended spring training.

My adoptee's foot has healed and he's been called back up to the majors.

Now if we could only trade for him to save him from the dark side....

After another stint on the DL for a hamstring injury, Tyler has been called up for tonight's game.

Hopefully he won't be much of a factor in it....
