Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs Return Three Pitchers for 2015

Little Falls, New York – The Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs are pleased to announce that three familiar faces will be returning to the pitching staff for 2015 including Tyler Brien, Lucas Godlewski and Matt Pidich.

 

Both Tyler Brian and Lucas Godlewski are household names in the Mohawk Valley as they are natives of the area playing high school ball at Ilion and Little Falls High School respectively.

 

The 6’ “5” 225 lb. Brien is a junior at Cortland and comes off a 2014 season where he made 14 appearances for the Red Dragons pitching in 11.1 innings and compiling a 2.38 ERA while striking out 14 batters and picking up a save.  With the DiamondDawgs last summer Brien posted a 1.80 ERA in his 2 appearances, earning a save while striking out four batters before he had to go to the Army National Guard. 

 

Meanwhile, Lucas Godlewski suited up for the Herkimer Generals in 2014 for his freshman campaign and started 4 games finishing 2-1 and fanning 15 in his 10.2 innings of work.  The 6’ “4” 205 lb. Liberal Arts & Sciences General Studies major turned it on in the summer when he joined the Dawgs going 4-0 on the year and posting a 2.27 ERA while striking out 25 batters in 31.1 innings and earning a spot on the PGCBL All-star team.

 

Matt Pidich, a right-handed pitcher from Aberdeen, New Jersey and a sophomore at the University of Pittsburgh returns to the DiamondDawgs in 2015 after making 14 appearances last summer in which he picked up 4 saves and struck out 18.  In 2014 Pidich saw limited action at Pitt as a freshman making only one appearance, however, rated as the 500th best 2013 prospect in the country by PerfectGame.org and the 15th best prospect in the state of New Jersey, he is expected to play a big role in the Panther rotation. 

 

When signed by Pitt head coach Joe Jordano, he said: "Matt is one of the most polished pitchers that we have ever recruited at the University of Pittsburgh; he's a great student and a great player. He throws three solid pitches consistently for strikes and he's the kind of kid who wants the ball in his hands against the best teams. He will make an immediate impact in our program.”

 

DiamondDawgs owner Travis Heiser spoke on signing his three returning arms, “We are very lucky to be able to sign and bring back three great pitchers of this caliber. The sky is the limit for all three of these guys this year – Veteran’s Memorial Park will be the place to be this summer – we are certainly excited.”

 

The Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs welcome Tyler, Lucas and Matt back in 2015!
