    His numbers speak for themselves…Followed him at ORU, and he’s only lost 2 games in the last 2 years…Hopefully the pitching weak Reds give him a fair shot…Signed for the bargain basement price of 25k…Has recovered nicely from Tommy John…

    correction on Serrano, only 1 loss in the last 2 years, and that loss came at the Regional at ASU against our own Mike Leake…4-3, had 13k’s that game…
