BRIDGEWATER, NJ- The Somerset Patriots have signed right-handed pitcher Vince Molesky for the 2018 season.

“First and foremost I am truly grateful to be with such a classy and successful organization,” said Moleksy. “I have heard nothing but amazing things about Somerset. I couldn’t be more excited to come over there and help the team win.”

Molesky enters his first season with the Somerset Patriots and first in the Atlantic League. The 27-year old spent the first three years of his professional career with the Gateway Grizzlies (Frontier League). Last year, he finished with an 8-7 record and a 3.85 ERA over 21 games (19 starts). He was tied for the league-lead in strikeouts (120) and finished third in innings pitched (128.2) while only allowing 34 walks.

The Montoursville, Pa.,resident made 18 starts in each of his first two seasons with the Grizzlies (2015-16). Molesky led the Frontier League in strikeouts (110) against just 25 walks in 2016 along with five wins and a 3.70 ERA. Additionally, he earned five wins and struck out 96 batters against 29 walks over 108.2 innings in his first season with the Grizzlies (2015). 

“We look forward to having Vince as a part of the Patriots family this season,” said Somerset Patriots manager Brett Jodie. “We had added many unselfish guys that are great teammates and that holds true with Vince. He is going to compete for a spot in our rotation, but he can also throw out of the bullpen. Vince is a strike thrower who minimizes walks and knows how to best use his repertoire of pitches to be effective. Molesky will fit in great and we look forward to seeing what he can do.”

The Mount St. Mary’s alumnus was 18-21 with a 4.19 ERA, six complete games, three shutouts and 326 strikeouts over 57 games (55 starts) in his three-year career in Gateway. 

Tickets are now on sale for the 2018 season beginning at home on Friday, April 27th. For more information, please visitwww.somersetpatriots.com.
