Jaspe Excels with Help of Bormaster

Jaspe spent last year in Pulaski and all of this season in Lansing. With the help of Lugnuts staff and teammate Brian Bormaster, Jaspe is feeling very confident in his defensive play behind the plate.
"Bormaster has a lot of experience and he helped me to learn about how to call the game faster," said Jaspe. "He talked to me about blocking and receiving too."
Jaspe has faced little adversity this season other than being place on the seven day disabled list after being hit by a pitch on his elbow. However, he said that injury is no longer an issue.
"I feel good now and I know I can finish the season strong," said Jaspe.
His plans for the off season include returning to Caracas to play baseball in order to improve on his batting and continue to get stronger defensively. It's his defense that he feels makes him an asset in minor league ball.
"I hope to start next year in Dunedin," said Jaspe. "Every team needs a good catcher and I know I can play there and in Double-A ball as well."
