Former Stomper pitcher signed by Milwaukee
After pitching 10 games for the Sonoma Stompers last season, pitcher Logan Gillaspie has been signed by the Milwaukee Brewers to a minor league contract.
A native of Bakersfield, Gillaspie signed with the Stompers in August 2017, and helped the team down the stretch prepare for the Pacific Association championship game.
“We’re excited to see Logan get an opportunity with an affiliated team,” general manager Brett Creamer said. “He was a competitor right out of the gate last season for us, and he’s a player who helped us down the stretch. We’re happy to see him get promoted to the Milwaukee Brewers organization.”
In his time with the Stompers, the right-hander pitched 12.1 innings, including four in the league championship game with 17 strikeouts.
Before playing in Sonoma, he spent time with the Monterey Amberjacks of the Pecos League and Salina Stockade of the American Association in 2017, his first year in pro ball.
Gillaspie joined the Eastside Diamond Hoppers of the United Shore Professional Baseball League for the 2018 season, where after pitching to a 2.08 ERA over 26 innings, he signed with the Brewers, and has since pitched seven games in their minor league system.
After two scoreless outings with the AZL Brewers, Gillaspie advanced to the Helena Brewers, where he has struck out seven batters over seven innings without waking anyone.
