Spring Training is right around the corner for Major League Baseball teams, and it soon it will be time for the Sioux Falls Canaries to kick off their 2014 season.

On Tuesday, manager Steve Shirley brought back Alan DeRatt and Kevin Dultz. 

DeRatt is a former closer for the Canaries. He had 22 saves in 2013 while striking out 39 and with a 3.90 ERA. He was also 0-3. Early in his career, he was in the Colorado Rockies farm system.

Last year was the first year in Sioux Falls for Dultz. The catcher hit .256 with two home runs and 14 RBIs.

Opening night at the Birdcage is set for May 15 against Sioux City at 7:05 p.m.
