The team announced today that catcher Justin Taylor along with right-handed pitcher JT Moeller have signed contracts for 2022. The team also announced the signing of University of Dayton left-handed reliever Eli Majick.
“We’re excited to bring in an experienced backstop and two great arms that will add some versatility to our pitching staff,” said Rockers field manager Chris Krepline.
