Matthew Schmidt of FanRagSports reports on Isaiah Austin signing with a Chinese Basketball Association team:
Former Baylor Bears big man Isaiah Austin has signed with the Guangxi Rhinos, a Chinese basketball team, according to international basketball reporter David Pick. Austin notably played his collegiate basketball at Baylor before ultimately being forced to take hiatus from the professional ranks of the NBA.

Tyler Bouldin of KWTX notes that Nate Orf may make it to the majors soon:
The 27-year-old returned to his high-average ways with the Sky Sox, hitting .288 in 89 games one year ago. Now in his first full season in Colorado Springs, Orf has already smashed a career-high in home runs (4) through 78 games and is one RBI shy of reaching his career-high in that department, 43, set in the 2014-15 seasons.
I took a look at Manu Lecomte yesterday.
