In other sports news, Jared Chester attends the Mountain West Media Summit and found out a few things. When it comes to the Lobos finishing last, the league’s coaches aren’t so sure. Chester also found out how valuable the transfer portal has been to the league. Top players have chosen Mountain West as their destination to either make an early transfer or complete a final year of eligibility.

Lobos outfielder Kyler Castillo was signed by the Miami Marlins organization. The Mountain West batting champion was most recently with the Missoula PaddleHeads, who made a deal with the Marlins to buy Castillo’s contract.

The Texas Premier Baseball Tournament landed at the Albuquerque Regional Baseball Complex.

New Mexico United has a field date with San Antonio FC on Wednesday night. New Mexico won the last game, but head coach Troy Lesesne expects to see a different look this time around. “I think they’ve changed the way they organize themselves a bit,” said Lesesne. “So it’s going to be a tough game. There is no doubt about it. They have a lot of talent, but I hope we can continue to build on the two victories that we have won one after the other. The game has a start time at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN 2.
