T-Bones re-acquire Garceau from Long Island

KANSAS CITY, KAN. – The Kansas City T-Bones announced that they have re-acquired the rights to pitcher Shaun Garceau from the Long Island Ducks of the Atlantic League as part of an August trade between the two clubs.

Garceau, 26, went 2-1 with a 1.17 ERA during the regular season with Long Island, plus 1-0 with 11 strikeouts and only one walk in two playoff appearances as the Ducks won the Atlantic League championship.

In 23 games (133 2/3 innings) with Kansas City in 2013, Garceau went 6-9 with a 4.30 ERA, 93 strikeouts and 33 walks. His ERA dropped in his last eight starts, from 4.95 to 4.30.

Garceau started 16 games for Kansas City in 2012. He went 9-6 with a 3.47 ERA, 75 strikeouts and 27 walks in 106 1/3 innings.

Garceau, who has pitched for York of the Atlantic League, reached double-A with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2010.

The T-Bones traded Garceau to Long Island on Aug. 30 for two players to be determined.
