Eddie Medina, who posted a 4-1 record last year with the Las Vegas Train Robbers of the Pecos League, signed a contract Monday with the Evansville Otters.
He averaged nearly a strikeout per inning and recorded a 3.95 earned run average in 18 appearances with the Train Robbers, including 10 starts.
“Eddie was a quality pitcher at St. John’s and he threw well at our Nashville camp,” Otters manager Andy McCauley said in a written statement. “He will be competing for a starting job on this year’s team.”
Medina is the fourth player Evansville has signed from its tryout camp. He joins catcher John Harris, infielder Josh Allen and lefthanded pitcher Jon Jones.
“I’m looking forward to playing for Andy, establishing myself as a vital part of the pitching staff and bringing Evansville back to its winning ways,” Medina said.
At. St. John’s, Medina had a 14-7 record with a career 4.73 ERA.
