St. Cloud

St. Cloud has announced five players that will be returning in 2007.

  • INF Bryan Cartie from McNeese State is only hitting .229 but his 13 walks have helped raise his OBP to .429. He tied a team record by walking four times in one game. Cartie also has stolen 4 bases in 5 tries.
  • RHP Luke Wertz did not give up a run in 5 appearances with St. Cloud last year. He was not as sharp in his first appearance this spring with Nebraska. He walked two, had two wild pitches, and gave up three earned runs in 1.2 innings.
  • INF/LHP James Leverton led the River Bats in homeruns and was second in steals last year. He had a couple multi-hit games last weekend for Texas Tech to raise his average to .233
  • LHP Trevor Fox is 1-2, 4.86 this spring for UC-Davis. He previously attended Santa Rosa JC.
  • RHP Chad Dawson struck out two and gave up two runs in his only start this spring for Indiana State. He was one of the most dependable River Bats last year, only giving up 9 runs in 37.2 innings of work.
