BATAVIA, N.Y. — Colby Suggs may be a rookie pitcher learning the ropes, but he has already made a mark in Class A baseball.
Suggs, playing for the Batavia Muckdogs in the Class A Short-Season New York-Penn League, has one pitching victory and two saves for the 12-11 team.
Suggs has an earned run average of 0.00 in five games. He has eight strike outs in six innings. He has walked one, allowing two hits. Opponents are hitting .118 against the former Wildcat.
Suggs got his win Monday from 1.2 innings of shutout work against the Jamestown Jammers in a 5-4 win. He has a recent save against State College on June 5 and one against Vermont on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old Sulphur Springs native is in his first assignment for the Miami Marlins.
It was thought that the second round pick would play in Florida for another team in the Miami minor league system, but he was assigned to Batavia.
Suggs, a 5-11 right-handed relief pitcher has filled a role with the Class A squad which plays home games in 2,600-seat Dwyer Stadium in Batavia in western New York.
Games are played under cooler conditions than Texas this time of year. The temperature last night against the Vermont Lake Monsters was 77 degrees. The league began play on June 17 and ends Sept. 4.
