Duluth Huskies Make Two More Roster Additions
Pouelsen and Mitzel Acquired for 2018
Duluth, Minn.—The Duluth Huskies have added two more players for the 2018 season. The new players are Logan Pouelsen (RHP, 1B, 3B) from Huntington Beach, California, and Tyler Mitzel (RHP) from Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Logan Pouelsen is in his sophomore season at the University of Hawaii (Honolulu, HI). As a freshman he appeared in 37 games, with 27 hits in 98 at-bats, driving in 10 runs and scoring 17 times. Defensively, he had a fielding percentage of .993, with 138 put-outs, four assists and only one error. In his current season, he has also spent some time on the mound. He has thrown 25.2 innings in eight appearances, with one complete game, including a shutout. He has an ERA of 4.56. At the plate this season, he has a batting average of .280 in 21 games played. He has 14 hits, eight RBIs and five runs scored.
Tyler Mitzel is a senior at Augustana University (Sioux Falls, SD.). His college baseball career started before he transferred to Augustana. He appeared in 17 games for the Arkansas State Red Wolves with nine starts. He threw a total of 64.1 innings and kept his ERA to 4.76. He struck out 47 batters and walked 32. Now pitching for the Vikings in 2018, he has five appearances, four starts and a perfect 4-0 record. He’s thrown 24.1 innings, allowing only five earned runs, striking out 22 and walking seven, with an impressive 1.85 ERA.
Pouelsen and Mitzel have shown their talents in their college careers, and have proven to be strong roster additions for the Huskies and should both strengthen the Huskies’ offense and build to their bullpen depth.
The Huskies open the 2018 season with five road games, but open at Wade Stadium Sunday, June 3rd against the Eau Claire Express. Season tickets, punch cards, and other ticket packages are still available. For more information, contact the Duluth Huskies front office at 218-786-9909 or firstname.lastname@example.org
