YAKIMA, Wash.- College teammates Shayne Simpson and Ryan Delgado will join right-handed pitcher Daniel Charron with the Pippins this summer.
Simpson and Delgado play together at California Baptist University, as a part of the Western Athletic Conference. Both of the Lancers have playing time this season, as their team sits second in the West Division.
Right-handed pitcher Delgado has had the second-most appearances this season for CBU, sporting a 6.75 ERA in 22.2 innings of work.
The Santa Maria, California, native was the team captain at Righetti High School where he helped lead his team win the Mountain League Championship his junior year.
His Lancer teammate Simpson is a left-handed hitting first baseman, who has 31 games played through his 2 years at California Baptist.
Simpson comes from Lake Forest, California, where he performed at a high level for El Toro High School. There he earned All-South Coast League honors and got to play in the All-State North v. South California Game.
“I’m really excited to have two more California Baptist kids who are very talented,” said skipper Kyle Krustangel.
Another pitcher for the Pippins this summer is Charron, a Pasco, Washington, native who is in his second year at Spokane Falls Community College.
Charron showcases a 87-89 mph fastball with a slider, a changeup, and a curveball as his offspeed arsenal.
“He’s a right-handed pitcher who will add great depth to our staff this summer,” said Krustangel.
The Pippins begin their eighth West Coast League season on June 3 as Yakima Valley hosts the Corvallis Knights. Tickets are for sale now on PippinsTickets.com.
