Bucks Announce Myriad of Roster Moves

WATERLOO, Iowa – The Bucks have made a multitude of roster moves prior to their seven-game homestand.

The Bucks, unfortunately, have to say goodbye to Kaleb Knox, Brodie Kresser, Teige Lethert, and Will Cheatham who all head home after returning from La Crosse.

However, five new members of the team have joined in preparation for a split doubleheader with the Bismarck Larks. Those include Chicago high school seniors Matt Cuzco, a right-handed pitcher; and left-handed pitcher Dylan Warda who will both be joining the Hoosiers at the University of Indiana in the fall.

Additionally, Ryan Guardino’s college teammate at Tennessee Tech, Frankie Cresta, is a right-handed pitcher native to Johnston, Iowa. Cresta pitched in 20 relief appearances for the Golden Eagles going 1-1 with a save.

Another left-handed pitcher to bolster the Bucks bullpen is University of the Ozarks left-hander, Blake Benson. A native to Springdale, Arkansas, Benson appeared in 12 games, starting 11 and going 5-3 on the season with a 5.20 ERA.

Finally, New Mexico State catcher Ryan Grabosch arrived in Waterloo following the Aggies making it to the NCAA Tournament. Grabosch appeared in one game in the tournament, a defensive substitution against the Vanderbilt Commodores in an elimination game in the Corvallis Regional. Grabosch batted .288 with four home runs and 22 RBI for New Mexico State.

All five of these players will look to make their debuts sometime during the seven-game homestand against the Larks, Loggers, and Honkers.
