Two pitchers added to Connecticut roster

Right-handed pitcher Patrick Cooper, the Tigers 14th round draft pick, and right-handed pitcher Jordan Pratt, the Tigers 16th round draft pick, have been assigned to the Connecticut Tigers.

Cooper is a candidate to fill the rotation slot left by Lance Baxter, who was re-assigned to the GCL Tigers on Tuesday.  A scouting report on Cooper is available at this link.

Pratt will join the Tigers bullpen.  He made an appearance for the University of Arkansas during the NCAA Super Regionals on June 12, in which his fastball sat at 89-91 mph and touched 92.  He also threw a slurvy high 70s slider.
