BATON ROUGE, La. – With first pitch at Pete Goldsby Field happening in a few short weeks, the Baton Rouge Rougarou continue to add talent to their lineup. Today the club announced the additions of right-handed pitchers Nate Kujawski and Steven Medrano to their 2021 roster. Kujawski hails from Greenwood Village, Colo. and is a sophomore at Chandler-Gilbert Community College in Chandler, Ariz. He joins his Coyote teammates, and now Rougarou teammates, Nick Cupp-Allen and Patrick Donovan who were announced earlier this year. The 6’5” righty appeared in 18 games this season, all in relief, and went 2-1 with four saves and a 5.55 ERA. In 24.1 innings of work, he struck out 32 while issuing only 9 walks for an outstanding 11.84 K’s/9 ratio. The third-year sophomore spent his first two collegiate seasons at Sierra College (Rocklin, Calif.). Kujawski appeared in 19 games his freshman year, again all in a relief role, and went 1-1 with two saves. In 37.1 innings he struck out 35 and walked only 13. In his pandemic-shortened 2020 season, the reliever appeared in nine games going 14.1 innings giving up only seven hits and two runs, striking out 11 with only 1 base-on-balls and tallying a sparkling 1.26 ERA. Medrano, a redshirt sophomore at Tennessee Tech (Cookeville, Tenn.), hails from El Paso, Texas. The 6’2”, 210-pound righty played at Howard College (Big Spring, Texas) his first two years where he redshirted in 2018 and appeared in three games in 2019, mostly at shortstop, and recorded one at-bat with one run scored. In 2020 Medrano was switched to the hill full-time and made 4 appearances before the remainder of the season was cancelled. In those appearances he recorded a 3.86 ERA with one save in 7.0 innings of work and compiled 13 strikeouts and just two walks, leading his team with an eye-popping 16.71 K’s/9. This season with the TTU Golden Eagles, Medrano has appeared in two games with one start and going 0-1. That lone start came against the 4 th -ranked Tennessee Volunteers where the righty gave up four runs on four hits and was tagged with the loss. The Baton Rouge Rougarou open the 2021 season on June 1 with a 4-game roadtrip to Texas to face both the Amarillo Sod Squad and Brazos Valley Bombers in 2-game sets. The Rougarou home opener will be Saturday, June 5 at Pete Goldsby Field versus the Victoria Generals. Please check back at the team’s official website for any other off-season news as it develops.
