RedHawks Sign Pair of Pitchers; Boleska Signs With Marlins

The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks signed a pair of pitchers, but lost one along the way.
 
The RedHawks have signed RHP Wade Morrison and RHP Ryne Nelson while recently-signed RHP Tom Boleska has signed a contract with the Miami Marlins organization. Boleska has reported to Minor League Spring Training with the Marlins.
 
Morrison, 25, spent last season with the Kansas City T-Bones of the American Association and the Normal (IL) Cornbelters of the Frontier League. He was 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA in five games for Kansas City. Morrison allowed just two hits in 6.0 innings pitched while striking out four batters. With Normal, Morrison was 0-0 with a 6.23 ERA in five games. He allowed nine runs (six earned) on seven hits in 8.2 innings pitched. Morrison walked ten batters and struck out seven.
 
Morrison, a California native who played college baseball at Morningside College in Sioux City, IA, began his professional career in the American Association with the Sioux City Explorers in 2010. After making three appearances for the Explorers, he moved on to the Grand Prairie AirHogs of the A.A., where he went 0-1 in five games.
 
Nelson, 25, has been out of professional baseball the past two seasons. He last played in 2009, where he saw time with Grand Prairie and the Texarkana (TX) Gunslingers of the Continental League. With Grand Prairie, Nelson was 0-0 with a 1.93 ERA in four games. He was 2-0 with a 1.08 ERA and four saves with Texarkana, where he struck out 23 batters in 16.2 innings.
 
Nelson began his professional career in 2008 after completing his college career at Lamar (TX) University. He pitched for the Bay Area (TX) Toros of the Continental League, where he was 2-1 with a 0.68 ERA with four saves in 16 games, before moving on to the El Paso Diablos of the American Association for two games.
 
Both Morrison and Nelson are classified as Rookies in the American Association.
 
“Morrison and Nelson are good, young arms who we are going to take a hard look at in training camp,” said RedHawks Manager Doug Simunic. “Boleska is a loss, but when you sign high-end talent you run the risk of losing them. It’s good for him and his career.”
