The Lemurs will open their season in less than a month and that has them adding to their roster, picking up a big piece of that puzzle today. Laredo sent out left handed pitcher Mike Blake, who had been signed only two weeks ago, to Sioux Falls for outfielder Nick Van Stratten. The former Kansas City Royals prospect had a big year for the canaries in 2013, hitting .352 with six home runs and 52 driven in. This continues a busy few days for the lemurs who also traded infielder Mike Provencher and released catcher Brian Peterson. The Lemurs will open their season Thursday May 15th against the Fargo Redhawks.
