Swift Current Indians add Texan
The Swift Current Indians have added a strong starting pitcher.
Ryan Benitez, 6'2, 220 pounds and a right-handed pitcher, is heading to southwest Saskatchewan after a lifetime in the Lone Star State.
“Benitez is another top of the rotation arm. He posted outstanding numbers last summer and was an All-Conference pitcher this past spring. He is an experienced pitcher who has the ability to throw any pitch any count and works both sides of the plate. We are very excited and looking forward to having Ryan on hill for us this summer,” said Indians coach Joe Carnahan.
With his college, Texas A & M Kingsville Benitez, went 7-4 with a 3.99 ERA in 79 innings. Opponents’ batting average was .265 with 81 strike outs and 18 walks.
Texas A&M Kingsville has produced Tribe alums Dan Rogers, Tim Jones and Justin Lee.
