The Long Island Ducks of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball (ALPB) have signed left-handed pitcher Brady Feigl to a contract for the upcoming 2022 season, today the team Tweeted.
Feigl begins his first season with the Ducks and seventh in professional baseball.
“Brady has posted strong numbers at each level of his pro career,” said Ducks President/GM Michael Pfaff. “He is a valuable addition to our bullpen, and we are happy to welcome him to Long Island.”
The 6-foot-4 Feigl–not to be confused with his doppelganger who is also named Brady Feigl, the same height, sports a red beard and pitched in the Oakland A’s system–spent the majority of the 2019 season with Triple-A Nashville in the Pacific Coast League (PCL). He posted a 2-0 record with a 3.43 ERA and 24 strikeouts to just three walks over 21 innings of work.
Feigl, 31, split time in 2018 between Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock in the Texas Rangers system, compiling a 6-1 record with a stingy 1.53 ERA, four saves, 37 strikeouts and 15 walks in 58.2 innings over 42 games.
Signed as an amateur in 2014, the Maryland native began his professional career in the Atlanta Braves organization. He made 38 appearances at the Single-A level, going 5-5 with a 3.02 ERA, one save, 60 strikeouts and 13 walks in 65.2 innings across 38 appearances.
The following campaign, the southpaw began the year in Triple-A with the Gwinnett Braves. Prior to playing professionally, he pitched for Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Md.
“I am excited and thankful for this opportunity to play for the Ducks,” Feigl said. “I’ve heard nothing but great things about the coaches, the team and especially, the fans. I am ready to get back out on the field with a great group of guys and compete for the championship.”
