PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Pittsfield Colonials have signed Haverhill native Tim Stronach, a right-handed pitcher.

Stronach spent four years in the New York Mets system, twice reaching as high as the St. Lucie Mets (Florida State League – A+). Splitting time between the bullpen and the starting rotation in the Mets organization, Stronach went 18-22 with a 4.49 ERA.

The 22nd round selection by New York in the 2006 draft out of Worcester State College, the 6’5” right-hander’s best season came in 2007 with the Brooklyn Cyclones (New York-Penn – A-) where he went 4-2 in 19 games (two starts) with a 3.41 ERA. He also allowed just one homer that season in 31.2 innings.

Overall in his career, Stronach has surrendered just 25 long balls in more than 300 innings.

Stronach has the distinction of being the First Worcester State College (now Worcester State University) player ever selected in the MLB draft. In his final two seasons with the Lancers, the righty struck out an impressive 131 batters in 116.2 IP. His best season was in 2005 when he went 6-0 with a 2.45 ERA in 13 games (five starts). In that season he struck out 60 batters and walked just 11 in 51.1 innings of work.

The Pittsfield Colonials will open up their second season on May 26 against the New Jersey Jackals. The Colonials will play 54 home games at Wahconah Park this season. For information on season tickets, the 1791 Club or partnerships with the Colonials, call 413-236-2961.
