Featured autograph - Jo-Jo Reyes

There are players like Reyes that end up making an appearance for major league teams every year - he was called up by the Angels in the last week of the season, pitched to one batter, recorded an out and got his first MLB win since 2011.

I don't know what Reyes' one-batter outing really means except the Angels were squeezed for pitching depth at the worst time so they had to call on a journeyman at AAA - it's kind of a neat to see these random guys pop up, particularly if I've gone through some of their baseball cards and are vaguely aware of who they are.

Admittedly, despite the lure of getting back to the major leagues - it might be less fun for the players themselves, when their playing opportunities are a bit dicey and they have to move around to see if they can get noticed.
