Trois-Rivières Eagles have signed David Gauthier, a 23-year-old left-handed pitcher, in preparation for the next baseball season.
Gauthier played the last campaign with Acton Vale Castors in Quebec Major League Baseball.
During 30 rounds of work in the regular season, he maintained a earned running average of 3.50 and registered 38 strikes. Then, in 24 rounds of the playoffs, he struck out 34 strokes in three strokes, while the opponent fought for .150 against him.
“David is a left-handed pitcher with great potential. He has a fast ball that reaches 88 miles per hour and a large repertoire of shots, “said Matthew Rusch, leader of the Trois-Rivières Eagles.
It will be a comeback for him in Mauricie as he developed within the Dragons program at the Collège Laflèche. He will also be the third Quebecer under contract with the Eagles after Raphaël Gladu and Sam Belisle-Springer.
Remember that the Frontier League formations can field a maximum of three players with veteran status, a maximum of 10 players with experience status and a minimum of 10 players with rookie status.
