Dutchmen Ink Two To Round Out Infield

Eric Samulski, Albany Dutchmen
 
The Dutchmen have announced two signings this week that will help them round out their 2011 infield. Joining SS Brandon Trinkwon (UC-Santa Barbara) and 3B Taylor Drake (McNeese State) are 2B Nikko Echevarria from Nova Southeastern in Florida and SS Anthony Turgeon from Central Connecticut State.

Turgeon is in the middle of his red-shirt Freshman season after being forced to sit out last year due to injury. After battling through a minor hamstring injury early in the season, the Mystic, CT native is back as an everyday member of the starting lineup and playing up to his immense potential. A regular at shortstop, Turgeon has started in all nineteen games that he has appeared in, hitting .273 with two home-runs and twelve RBIs. The 6'0" 180-pound right-handed hitter was a standout at Fitch HS before attending CCSU. Named the team's Most Valuable Player as a Senior, Turgeon was also named All-State, was selected to the All-Conference Team three separate times and was also honored as an All-Area selection on two occasions.

On the other side of the bag, Nikko Echevarria was signed to man second base for the Dutchmen. Coming from Division Two powerhouse, Nova Southeastern, Echevarria has emerged as one of the team's leaders. After starting 32 games as a Freshman and hitting .305, Nikko was forced to red-shirt in 2009 due to injury. He returned last year and hit .350 with 25 RBIs and 13 steals and was named second-team All-Sunshine State Conference. The 5'8" 175-pounder has also seen some time in left-field this year, but has brought his usual offensive production. In thirty games, he is hitting .281 with ten extra base hits, including two home runs, 16 RBIs, a .416 on-base percentage and eight steals. The product of the IMG Academy, Echevarria was named a Top Prospect for Perfect Game coming out of high school and was also selected to the All-Region team.
