CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Austin Peay State University baseball pitcher Stephen Huff has signed a minor league contract with the Chicago White Sox over the weekend, Govs head coach Gary McClure announced, Monday.
Huff, a Nashville native, posted a 6-5 record and 6.93 ERA during his senior campaign, finishing with 74 strikeouts in 75.1 innings. It was his best strikeout ratio (8.84 per nine innings) during his career and only five shy of his career best strikeout total set during his sophomore year (79). During his four year career, he started 40 games – eighth most in school history – and recorded 13 career victories. Huff was only the fifth Austin Peay pitcher to record 200 career strikeouts and finished his career with 213 strikeouts, fifth-most in program history.
Huff is scheduled to join the Great Falls (Mont.) Voyagers, the White Sox' Rookie level team in the Pioneer League. He is the second Austin Peay pitcher to sign a free agent contract this summer, joining Zach Gerler who signed with the Washington Nationals earlier this month. Gerler was assigned to the National's Gulf Coast League affiliate.
