Emmitsburg, Md. (December 22, 2016) – Former Mount St. Mary's University baseball standout Brady Feigl was traded from the Atlanta Braves organization to the Texas Rangers as part of a three-player deal in early December. Feigl and right-hander Tyrell Jenkins went to the Rangers in return for righty Luke Jackson.
Feigl made his pro debut back in 2014, posting a 3.02 ERA with 60 strikeouts in 38 games across two Single-A levels. He was promoted to Triple-A the following year and was nearing a call-up to the majors before suffering a season-ending arm injury. Feigl returned to action in August of 2016, throwing six shutout innings between the Gulf Coast Braves and Danville Braves. The lefty owns a 2.74 career ERA with 66 strikeouts in 72.1 innings pitched in his professional career.
Feigl, who played at the Mount from 2009-12, ranks seventh all-time in the school's DI history with 154 strikeouts and is tied for eighth for most complete games with six. During the 2009 season, Feigl posted the ninth-most strikeouts (69) in a single season in program history and ninth-highest strikeouts per nine average (9.96).
The two other pieces in the trade between the Rangers and Braves, Jackson and Jenkins, are both well-regarded prospects who reached the MLB within the last two seasons. Jackson was taken with the 45th overall selection in the 2010 draft and has thrown 18 MLB innings over the past two years. Jenkins, who joined the Braves organization as part of the Jason Heyward-Shelby Miller trade, threw 52 innings with Atlanta this past season.
