Nationals Purchase Herron's Contract

The Washington Nationals have purchased the contract of Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks RHP Tyler Herron.  Herron is the seventh RedHawks player purchased by a Major League organization in 2012 and the 62nd in franchise history.

Herron, 26, spent the 2012 season with the RedHawks and established himself as one of the top starting pitchers in the American Association.  He was 12-3 with a 3.29 ERA in 23 games (17 starts) for Fargo-Moorhead.  In 123.0 innings pitched, Herron struck out a team-high 105 batters and walked just 30.  2012 marked Herron’s return to professional baseball after missing all of 2011 with an arm injury. 

Herron is currently playing Winter Ball in Puerto Rico for the Atenienses de Manati and is 2-2 with a 3.63 ERA in four starts.  He has struck out 17 batters, walked three and allowed 25 hits in 22.1 innings pitched.

Herron was originally selected in the first round (46th overall) of the 2005 draft by the St. Louis Cardinals.  He reached the Double-A level with both the Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates organizations and spent the 2010 season with the Kalamazoo Kings of the Frontier League.

“Tyler came here looking for a chance to revive his career and we are happy we could help him do that,” said RedHawks Manager Doug Simunic.  “He became the ace of our staff as the season moved along and hopefully he can take advantage of this opportunity with the Nationals.”
