The Canyon County Spuds play their first game is in 23 days. This means it’s time for another round of player updates.

Lets check out a few more players for the Spuds:

Dylan Jester – Catcher – Lower Columbia College

The first player that the Spuds signed way back in 2020. I know, it feels like forever ago. Dylan has not received a lot of playing time for the Red Devils this season. But, in the games that he has played he has made the most of it. Over the past few weeks he has received an extended amount of playing time and recorded his first hit in a LCC uniform. Jester is hoping to bring the momentum of the last few weeks to the Spuds this season.

Liam Kerr – Infielder – Lower Columbia College

Kerr is joining Dylan on the roster from Lower Columbia College. He has played in a handful of games more recently but has yet to get his first hit. However, Kerr has quite the experience in big games. His high school baseball team went to state three years in a row. They took 3rd in 2017, 2nd in 2018, and 4th in 2019. His favorite quote is by his current head coach at LCC. “Work your face off men.”

Mark Taylor – First Base/Outfielder – Butte College

Taylor is coming to the Spuds as a sophomore from Butte. So, he will more than likely be looking for a place to call home for baseball throughout the summer. On the season for the Roadrunners this season Taylor is hitting .316/.381/.421 with 12 hits in 38 at bats across 13 games. He has not hit a homerun this season but he had two during the 2019-20 season.

(Yes the next two are brothers)

Oliver Massie – Right Handed Pitcher – Lane Community College

Oliver is a freshman at Lane, who hails from the treasure valley. He is from Boise. He has been at Lane for two years but is still a freshman due to Covid-19. Throughout the two years at Lane CC he has thrown a total of 15.2 innings as of now. However, this season he has appeared in four games throwing eight innings, while giving up 10 hits, and 2 walks. Oliver has struck out eight batters and has yet to allow an earned run. He is 1-0 on the season.

Evan Massie – Left Handed Pitcher- Edmonds College

Evan, just like his brother is from Boise. Though, he has not pitched as much for his school. This season for Edmonds, Evan has only appeared in 1 game. In that game he threw 1/3 of an inning, giving up 3 hits, and 1 run. The one out came on a strikeout. Three seasons ago at Boise High, he pitched in twelve games, recorded a 2.40 ERA, and struck out 51 batters in 46.2 innings.

The roster for the Spuds is starting to look promising in the inaugural season. Stay tuned for more articles about the Spuds.
