(UPDATED) “Kimbo” wraps up first pro baseball season

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is an updated version of a story we originally posted earlier this week.

We have our final “Kimbo” update of the summer for you today.

2010 Mount Si grad Josh Kimborowicz wrapped up his first pro baseball season last night for the Princeton Rays rookie league team as the Rays’ season is coming to a close. In last night’s game, the pitcher, drafted back in June out of Everett CC by Princeton’s parent Major League Baseball team the Tampa Bay Rays, pitched an inning and struck out two as the Rays fell to Bristol (TN) 3-2. Princeton will end the season under. 500 and miss the playoffs. In a game Monday, he pitched three innings, giving up four runs, one earned in a Rays loss to Elizabethton (TN).

Kimborowicz’s first pro campaign turned out to be mixed. He finishes 2013 having gone 2-4 on the season, with a final earned run average of 4.54. In 37 2/3 innings, the ex-Wildcat gave up 24 runs, 19 earned, on 36 hits, walking 19 and striking out 32. Opposing hitters hit .261 against the pitcher.

It will be interesting to see what happens this offseason for Kimborowicz.
