SOMERSET, NJ -- The Somerset Patriots announced that reliever Buddy Boshers has been signed by the Minnesota Twins and has received a Major League spring training invite.

Boshers was the 2015 Atlantic League Relief Pitcher of the Year, finishing with a 1.00 ERA and 71 strikeouts in 54 innings pitched over 52 games.

“We are very happy for Buddy and this opportunity to make it back to the majors. He had a tremendous year for us and was an integral part in our bullpen’s success in late game situations,” said Somerset Patriots Manager Brett Jodie.

"Buddy put in the time and effort to improve everyday and showed he can compete at the high level expected in the Atlantic League. He’s a perfect example of showing how that can translate to opportunities with major league teams. We wish him the best of luck with the Twins."

Prior to joining the Somerset Patriots in 2015, Boshers had Major League time. In 2013, the southpaw reliever appeared in 25 games for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, striking out 13 batters in 15.1 innings of work. He is the seventh player who spent time with the Patriots during the 2015 season to be signed by a Major League organization, joining Edwin Quirarte (SF Giants), Mickey Storey (LA Dodgers), Chris Marrero (Chicago White Sox), Sean Bierman (Baltimore Orioles), Lucas Irvine (Arizona Diamondbacks), and Connor Little (Minnesota Twins).

The Somerset Patriots won their Atlantic League leading sixth championship during the 2015 season. The schedule for 2016 has been released and can be viewed at www.somersetpatriots.com.
