The Oshawa Dodgers are excited to announce the return of two of the premier pitchers in the Intercounty Baseball League.
Returning after being involved in the Dodgers first ever trade is RHP Greg Byron. Byron was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs last season along with Bryan Condotta for Sean Travers and Tyler Johnstone. Prior to the trade, Byron posted a 1-2 record with a 3.93 ERA. The former Max Reid Award recipient has been a member of the Dodgers organization since the 2005 season and although battled injuries, has a very respectable 7-7-4 career record with a 4.71 ERA.
The Oshawa Dodgers are also thrilled to announce the return of RHP Adam Garner to the rotation in 2009. Last season Garner was a team and league standout. He posted a 2.84 ERA over the regular season in 44.1 innings pitched. He had a 6-1 record and 26 strikeouts before leaving the club to sign professionally with the Kansas City T-Bones of the Northern Independent Baseball League. Garner returned to the Dodgers in time for game 5 of the best of 7 playoff series versus Barrie where he got the start. He was nothing short of stellar pitching 11 innings of 6 hit baseball striking out eight for the extra innings victory and the first playoff series win for the Dodgers in team history. Garner was subsequently named Season MVP with a team record 6 wins in a season and Dodgers pitcher of the year.
