Bells Add Several Ten-Day Players to 2018 Roster
May 24, 2018
The Bellingham Bells have added multiple ten-day players to the 2018 roster. The ten-day player class consists of six pitchers, a catcher, three infielders and an outfielder.
“This is a group of quality players and we believe each one of them could make a big difference in our early season success,” Bells pitching coach and recruiting coordinator Jim Clem said. “We have had our eyes on these particular players for a while.”
Due to the varying academic and athletic schedules, players will arrive in Bellingham at different times in June. This causes some players to miss the early part of the season, requiring that the ten-day players fill out the roster in the early part of the season. The Bells retain the option to keep any of these players after their ten-day contracts expire.
“These ten-day players are extremely important to our team, regardless of whether they make the full-time roster,” Clem noted.
This year the Bells have signed 10 ten-day players to help round out the roster at the beginning of the season.
The ten-day players include:
Justin Armbruester, RHP, Pacific Lutheran University
Elliott Carney, RHP, Edmonds Community College
Marcos Cuenca, RHP, Western Oklahoma State
Lucas Ford, RHP, Edmonds Community College
Alex Gregory, RHP, Pacific Lutheran University
Tyler Williams, RHP, Bellevue College
Matt James, University of Notre Dame
Tori Doten, Pacific Lutheran University
Griffin McCormick, Bellevue College
Ben McKay, Wenatchee Valley Community College
Marques Carlson, Pacific Lutheran University
The Bells open the 2018 WCL season June 1st at Kelowna. Bellingham will host in their home opener versus the Walla Walla Sweets at Joe Martin Field June 4th.
