The Kansas City T-Bones announced that the club has exercised the 2018 option on 22 players.
The players include:
Alex Blackford, right-handed pitcher
Jordan Edgerton, infielder
Paul Hendrix, infielder
Cedric Hunter, outfielder
Kevin Keyes, infielder
Dexter Kjerstad, outfielder
Marcus Lemon, outfielder
Jackson Lowery, right-handed pitcher
Chantz Mack, outfielder
Rich Mascheri, left-handed pitcher
Jared Mortensen, right-handed pitcher
Luis Paula, right-handed pitcher
Tucker Pennell, catcher
Gabe Perez, right-handed pitcher
Kyle Petty, infielder
Leonardo Rojas, catcher
Matt Sergey, right-handed pitcher
Grant Sides, right-handed pitcher
Myles Smith, right-handed pitcher
Niko Vazquez, infielder
Jeff Walters, right-handed pitcher
Cody Winiarski, right-handed pitcher
“Exercising the option” means that the players still need to be signed to contracts for the 2018 season, but Kansas City retains their rights for the season.
The T-Bones just completed their second-best season in franchise history, going 57-43 in 2017, under first-year manager Joe Calfapietra.
In a separate transaction the club acquired right-handed pitcher Grant Sides from York in the Atlantic League, to complete an earlier trade between the two clubs.
2018 season tickets are available online or by calling 913-328-5618 or visiting in person the Providence Medical Center Box Office.
