The Medford Rogues announced the commitment of five players to the 2014 roster, the second group of players to be announced for the summer season. Added to the roster are: right-handed pitcher Dylan Ramage (Morehead State), infielder Joe Love (Northern Colorado), and three Pepperdine Waves: right-handed pitcher Ian Doughty, center fielder Jeremy Goldenetz and right-handed pitcher Mat Snider.
"This group continues our plan to bring in quality Division I players from throughout the country and expand our recruitment footprint," Rogues General Manager Chuck Heeman said. "We've also targeted schools that finish their school years and tournaments earlier in the spring. We're finding that Medford's reputation as a quality place to send players is spreading among college coaches and this group represents that."
Love is projected to be Northern Colorado's starting third baseman in the spring after hitting .250 with one home run and 14 RBIs in a backup role last spring.
Doughty enters Pepperdine as a highly regarded freshman and is expected to contribute immediately. He pitched a no-hitter on May 17 as his Piedra Vista High School team finished state runner-up in New Mexico.
Goldenetz hit over .400 in his senior year at Corona's Santiago High and was named all-area for the Inland region of California. He projects as a leadoff hitter for the Waves.
Snider had a 1-0 record and 2.60 ERA with the Waves in 2013 and is expected to take a larger role in the Pepperdine bullpen in the spring.
Ramage is the fourth from Morehead State to sign with the Rogues, playing at Southeastern Community College in Burlington, Iowa in 2013.
