SwampDogs Bolster Pitching with Miami Men

The Fayetteville SwampDogs are pleased to announce the signing of Michael Hendricks and Cole Gnetz, right-handed pitchers for the Miami RedHawks, to the 2018 roster.


Hendricks, a junior from Defiance, Ohio, has served as both a starter and reliever in his two-plus seasons in Miami. In three starts and five relief appearances during his freshman year, Hendricks compiled a 3-1 record. The 6-3, 234 lb. RedHawk has worked exclusively out of the bullpen in his sophomore and junior seasons, recording 18 strikeouts over 14.2 innings in 2017 and 2018.



Gnetz is also in the midst of his junior season for the Redhawks and has transitioned to the bullpen after working primarily as a starter as a freshman. Working exclusively out of relief, the 6-4, 212 lb. native of Woodbury, Minnesota has held opponents to a .180 batting average while putting together a 3-0 record in 2018.

"Both of these guys have great stuff on the mound," said SwampDogs head coach Matt Hollod. "They will each play a key role for us this summer. They both bring versatility and experience and will be integral in our quest to bring the Petitt Cup to Fayetteville."



The SwampDogs are excited to have Hendricks and Gnetz in Fayetteville this summer. The race for the Petitt Cup starts Tuesday, May 29 at The Swamp.
