The Winnipeg Goldeyes added a new rookie pitcher to the bullpen today, scooping up former Francis Marion University standout Jeffrey Stoner.
Stoner, 22, posted a shiny 1.85 ERA with seven saves in his senior season, which just wrapped up this spring. That performance earned him a spot on the first conference all-star team, among others. His 72 appearances are a school record, and his 19 saves are the second-highest tally in FMU history.
The Goldeyes, meanwhile, are wrapping up a 10-game road trip at 2 p.m. today in Lincoln. They already won the series, having taken victory in the first two games.
Then they’ll race home to open the home season at Shaw Park on Monday, with a game against the visiting Sioux City Explorers.
