Schriever, who grew up in Yorba Linda, California, is in his second year at Northridge. The right-hander went 2-0 in 9.2 innings pitched for the Matadors last season but was granted a medical hardship waiver after suffering an injury, making him a redshirt freshman this season. Schriever has pitched in 9 games for Northridge in 2018, tossing 11.2 innings in 1 start and 8 appearances out of the bullpen. The 6-0, 162 lb. reliever has a 1-0 record, 3.09 ERA and 12 strikeouts while holding opposing hitters to a batting average of just .167.
Cooper is in his first year at Northridge after two impressive seasons at Palomar College, including a sparkling .434 batting average in 2017. The redshirt junior is off to a hot start for the Matadors as well, batting .298 with 2 home runs and 19 RBIs through 23 games. The 5-10, 175 lb. native of Bakersfield, California also has a .443 on-base percentage in 2018.
The SwampDogs look forward to having Schriever and Cooper join the team this summer. The season is just over two months away, with the fun beginning May 29 at the Swamp.
