The Toy Cannon lives!

Thanks to some notes from Baseball America, we find out a little more about new signing Jordan Comadena:

Comadena signed as a nondrafted free agent after a four-year career at Purdue, during which he batted .340/.455/.620 as a junior. But a broken hand late that season quashed his hopes of being drafted that summer, and he then struggled to a .276/.379/.359 season as a senior. Interestingly, Camadena was discovered at a Northwoods League alumni game by Astros scout (and former standout outfielder) Jimmy Wynn.
