Stompers pick up five in offseason
SONOMA, Calif.– The Sonoma Stompers Professional Baseball Club selected three players in Saturday's Pacific Association tryout and league draft.
“With spring training around the corner, the league tryout gave us a glimpse of what this season has in store,” said Stompers general manager Brett Creamer. “It’s been amazing to work with our new manager, Zack Pace, to build this team.”
Spring training will begin May 21.
LEAGUE TRYOUT CAMP DRAFT PICKS
1. Robert Maislin, RHP – Houston, TX
Maislin played at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington.
2. Brennan Fischer - RHP/OF – Frisco, TX
"Brennan is so versatile. He can be successful on both sides of the ball. He's young, has a ton of upside and we think he'll be a great fit," Creamer said. "He checked all the boxes."
3. Daniel Bodishbaugh - RHP – Pleasant Hill, Calif.
Before playing at Academy of Art University, Bodisbaugh notched an 5-3 in his two years at Los Medanos College in Brentwood, Calif. During his freshman campaign, he posted a 2.31 ERA in 39 innings pitched.
In addition to their league draft pickups, the Stompers collected two infielders from the California Winter League earlier this season.
1. Elijah Briseno – INF
Utility infielder Brienso tied for first for his team in Winter League runs batted in and impressed with his great glovework. Briseno spent 17 games with the Las Cruces Vaqueros of the Pecos League in 2015. In 72 plate appearances, he hit .295 with two home runs.
2. Christopher Scalisi – INF
In 51 games for the Pecos League's Hollywood Stars last year, Scalisi hit .300 with 18 RBIs and four home runs. Prior to independent ball, Scalisi posted a career average of .368 with 119 RBIs in four seasons at the University of the Redlands.
