The Kansas City T-Bones have acquired pitcher Ryan Fennell from New Jersey of the Can-Am League for a player to be determined later.
Fennell, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound right hander from Pittsford, N.Y., has split time in 2013 between independent Can-Am teams Newark and New Jersey. Most recently, in nine games with the New Jersey Jackals, Fennell has a 1.76 ERA in 15 1/3 innings, with 13 strikeouts and eight walks. Overall this season, he is 1-3 with a 5.98 ERA in 23 games. The 23-year-old Fennell began his professional career in 2012 in the Cincinnati Reds organization.
Fennell is expected to be in uniform tonight as the T-Bones play host to Lincoln for the second game of a three-game series at CommunityAmerica Ballpark. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
Earlier Tuesday, in a separate deal, the club announced it traded Matt Padgett and Lucas Irvine to New Jersey for four players to be named later.
