Wenatchee is receiving right-handed pitcher Beau Kerns and left-handed pitcher Mitch Yada from Wenatchee Valley Community College, infielder Stockton Taylor from Everett Community College, and right-handed pitcher Colton Loomis from Community Colleges of Spokane.
Kerns returns to the AppleSox after being a member of the team’s starting rotation in 2012. He went 4-2 with 2.55 ERA and logged a team-high 63 innings last summer. The sophomore out of Lewiston, ID, is 3-1 for the Knights with a 2.31 ERA.
