The Cologne Cardinals have found a replacement for Jack Shannon. 24-year-old Sean Callegari is a left-hander from Vancouver, Canada. This winter he pitched in three games for the Adelaide Bite in the Australian Baseball League. He can also play the outfield. In his home country he works as a baseball instructor. The Cardinals already have announced that Devery Van De Keere is taking over as head coach and that infielder Kazusa Katayama returns for a second season in Cologne.
