Jake Fox

This Jake Fox signed ATCRCS card, like Mitch Atkins from the other day, came courtesy of some help from someone on SCN who regularly gets autographs from the independent Atlantic League teams. Also like Atkins, Fox started the season with the Somerset Patriots but was able to sign a contract with an affiliated club. He just recently signed on as a free agent with the Arizona Diamondbacks Triple A affiliate, Reno Aces.

Fox was originally selected by the Cubs in the third round of the 2003 draft. He worked his way up the system before finally making his debut in a midseason callup in 2007. He made 7 appearances with the club before being sent back to Iowa. He spent 2008 between Double-A Tennessee and Triple-A but was called up again in 2009 for a significant portion of the season.

Following that year, the Cubs traded him to Oakland, who turned around a few months later and traded him to Baltimore.
