Bridgeport Bluefish team officials today announced that relief pitcher David Kubiak has had his contract purchased by the New York Yankees organization. He will report to Double-A Trenton of the Eastern League.
“Kubiak has proven to be an extremely reliable reliever,” says Paul Herrmann, Bluefish Senior Director of Baseball Operations and Public Relations. “We are very happy for David and may the force be with him.”
Kubiak has made five appearances with the ‘Fish, collecting a 3.17 ERA with 20 strikeouts in 11.1 innings pitched.
The 26-year-old made his professional debut in 2011 after being selected by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 36th round of the MLB Draft, appearing with two Rookie-level teams. The following season, he joined Evansville of the independent Frontier League, and in 2014 he played for Southern Illinois and Joliet, both also of the Frontier League.
Kubiak is the second Bluefish player to have his contract purchased during the 2016 season.
