Southpaws Pacillo and Rollins Brought Aboard for 2016

Kenosha, Wis. – In an effort to add some left handed pitching to the staff, the Kingfish have added two more players. Joining the team in Kenosha for the 2016 summer will be Anthony Pacillo and Lucas Rollins.

Anthony Pacillo is a product of Lyndhurst, New Jersey and junior at Seton Hall. His freshman year with the Pirates, he collected the accolades. He was named to the freshman All-American team, the NJCBA rookie Pitcher of the Year, All-NJCBA second team, and NJCBA All-Rookie Team. In that season, he started 9 games and had an ERA of 2.98.

Last year, Pacillo was still an effective pitcher as he made 14 appearances, 11 starts, and posted a 4.41 ERA. On April 28, he was named ECAC Pitcher of the Week. So far this year, he has had an immaculate season of pitching. Moving to a relieving role exclusively, Pacillo has garnered an ERA of 2.37 through 28 appearances out of the pen. Hitters are also only batting .198 against him as well and have been strike out victims 29 times.

Lucas Rollins will be joining the Kingfish as well this summer. Another New Jersey boy, from Collingswood specifically, Rollins is currently in his freshman year at St. Joseph’s University. In high school he was a First Team All-Conference pitcher with an ERA of 1.40 his senior year. He comes from good stock as well, with his uncle being drafted by the Chicago Cubs.

His freshman year he has been off to a great start, stepping into a key pitching role. In 8 starts, he has had an ERA of 3.14 and has picked up a pair of wins. He has been able to shut down opposing hitting in general, as batters are only hitting .267 against him. Both will be joining a Kingfish staff that was strong last year, and will have to be efficient once again to find the same level of success in 2016. The Kingfish will open up play this summer at home against the La Crosse Loggers on May 31 at 7:05 CST.
