Former Bluefish pitcher signs with Pittsburgh
 

(Bridgeport, Conn. – January 9, 2012) – Former Bridgeport Bluefish pitcher Logan Kensing has signed a minor league contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates organization. The former Major Leaguer will report to Major League spring training in late February.

“We are very glad for Logan to get this opportunity and wish him the best of luck,” says Bluefish manager Willie Upshaw. “He is a tremendous athlete and was a solid anchor for this pitching staff last season.”
 
Kensing appeared in nine games for the Bluefish in 2011, posting a solid 1.59 ERA. He allowed only seven hits and four walks, while striking out 16 batters over the course of 11.1 innings of work. With his impressive performance, he was picked up by the New York Yankees and reported to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He finished with a 4.28 ERA with four saves and 32 strikeouts in 21 appearances for the Yankees affiliate.

The 29-year-old made the jump to the Big Leagues in 2004 with the Marlins, in just his second season of professional baseball. The reliever has appeared in 134 Major League games with the Marlins and Nationals. With Florida in 2008, he averaged a strikeout per inning out of the ‘pen, with MLB personal bests of 55 strikeouts and 55.1 innings pitched, and also finished with a 3-1 record and a 4.23 ERA. Kensing owns an 8-9 career Major League record with a 5.81 ERA and 143 strikeouts in 134 appearances.
 
The Bridgeport Bluefish Professional Baseball Club, a charter team in the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, plays its home games at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard, located off Exit 27 of I-95 on the corner of Broad Street and South Frontage Road in Bridgeport. 2012 season tickets, mini-plans and group outings are available by calling 203-345-4800.
