WASHINGTON, Pa. — Fostoria High School graduate Alex Kaminsky will pitch for the Frontier League’s Washington Wild Things after having been traded by the Lake Erie Crushers for a player to be named.
Kaminsky is entering his third season with his third team in the Frontier League, which is not affiliated with Major League Baseball. He previously pitched for three teams in the American Association after spending one season in the Cleveland Indians system.
Last year with the Crushers, who play in the Cleveland suburb of Avon, Kaminsky went 7-5 with a 3.28 earned run average in 19 starts.
The previous year, the right-hander went 10-5 with a 3.74 ERA with the Gateway Grizzlies.
“We are excited about the acquisition of Alex,” Wild Things manager Bart Zeller said. “He has demonstrated a level of consistency over the past two years in the Frontier League, going 17-10. He will compete for a job in our starting rotation.
“He has command of several pitches and his previous coaches say that he has a very solid work ethic. His fastball is usually in the high 80s and quite frankly, we are happy he is not competing against us this season.”
The Wild Things will open their season May 15 on the road against the Florence Freedom. Washington’s home opener will be May 20 against the Frontier Greys.
