The Kansas City T-Bones and manager Tim Doherty have agreed to terms with left-hander Brett Davis for the 2010 season.
Davis, 24, signed with the T-Bones on August 17, 2009 after finishing his collegiate career at Oklahoma State University. The left-hander earned Northern League Pitcher of the Week honors in his first week as a professional, posting a 1-0 record with a 1.80 ERA in two starts that week. In his professional debut on August 18, Davis allowed just one run over seven innings in a complete game victory in game two of a doubleheader versus the Schaumburg Flyers.
“Brett had a good rookie season and we expect him to battle for the fifth starting spot in 2010,” said Doherty. “He is a quality left-hander and a tough competitor with a good changeup.”
Davis began his collegiate career at Seward County Junior College in Liberal, KS before heading to Arizona State University where he was a medical redshirt in 2007. He then transferred to Oklahoma State for the 2008 and 2009 seasons. Davis was named to the Academic All-Big 12 team in 2009 and was a member of the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll in 2008 & 2009.
The T-Bones begin their 2010 campaign against the RailCats in Gary, IN on May 20 and will host the RedHawks in their home opener on May 28.
