LYNN, Mass. — The North Shore Navigators continue to finalize their roster for the upcoming Futures Collegiate Baseball League season and have announced the signing of two more Massachusetts native pitchers.
Coming to Lynn’s Fraser Field during the summer of 2020 will be Robert Nadel (La Salle) and Saugus native returnee and former Northeastern Conference MVP Todd Tringale (Northern Essex Community College). President and General Manager Derek January made the announcement on Monday.
A Lawrence Academy product, Nadel just completed his senior season at La Salle University in Philadelphia and intends to transfer to use his final year of college eligibility in 2021. The Winchester native totaled three strikeouts as he pitched an inning in two different games during the Explorers’ shortened season. The 6-foot, 190-pound righty earned back-to-back St. Louis Metro Collegiate League All-Star honors as a member of the St. Louis Kats before finishing last summer with the NECBL’s Martha’s Vineyard Sharks.
Scouting Report: Experienced pitcher … fastball sits 88-91mph … excellent slider … three-quarters arm slot … MLB comp: Steve Cishek.
The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Tringale joined the Navs for five appearances after finishing his standout career at Saugus High School, posting a 2.38 ERA and 10 strikeouts over his 11.1 innings. After contributing to North Shore’s 30-win regular season, he shut out Bristol over four, two-hit frames in a playoff start. Tringale was a captain, Boston Herald All-Scholastic, and two-time Northeastern Conference All-Star during his time as a Saugus Sachem. He earned league MVP honors as a senior, going 8-2 with a 0.63 ERA and 119 strikeouts in 70.1 innings.
Scouting Report: Very talented pitcher with excellent command … fastball sits 86-89mph … great competitor with a high ceiling for development … MLB comp: Mike Leake.
