RedHawks Sign Dunigan, Higgs & Wright; Deal Harris

03/02/2015 1:50 PM -

The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks have signed OF Joe Dunigan, C Travis Higgs and RHP Josh Wright and traded LHP Joe Harris to the York (Penn.) Revolution of the Atlantic League for cash considerations.

 

 

Dunigan, 28, was acquired last week from the New Jersey Jackals of the Can-Am League for three players. He batted .249 with 13 doubles, 27 home runs, 71 RBIs and 58 runs scored in 92 games for New Jersey in 2014. He led the Can-Am League in home runs and finished in in the top five in RBI (3rd), total bases (3rd-183), extra-base hits (3rd-40) and slugging percentage (4th-.511). Dunigan also stole ten bases last year.

 

 

Higgs, 26, returns to the RedHawks for his second season. In 2014, he batted .271 with 11 doubles, six home runs, 25 RBIs and 24 runs scored in 64 games. Higgs appeared in 37 games at catcher and also saw action at first base, the outfield and as designated hitter.

 

 

Wright, 24, made his professional debut with the Roswell Invaders of the Pecos League in 2014. He was 4-0 with a 2.08 ERA in and three saves 13 games (five starts) with 34 strikeouts in 43.1 innings pitched. Wright played college baseball at Emmanuel College in Georgia, where he was 8-3 with a 3.38 ERA in 22 games (12 starts) as a senior in 2013.

 

 

“These are three good signings for us. Obviously Dunigan will be a big part of our line-up, and Higgs did a nice job for us in several roles last season,” said RedHawks Manager Doug Simunic. “Higgs and Wright are both still rookie classification, and we think they can both be solid contributors for us this year.”

 

 

Harris, 28, will return to the team he finished the 2014 season with in 2015. Last year, he was 4-3 with a .2.31 ERA in 36 games for the RedHawks before being traded to York in late August. Harris became the RedHawks all-time leader in games pitched with 160 last summer.

 

 

“Joe got a taste of the Atlantic League last year and decided he did not want to return to Fargo,” said Simunic. “York was his preferred destination and we were able to make a deal that worked for both clubs.”
