Stingers add 3 for 2014


WILLMAR — The Willmar Stingers have added three California prep standouts, pushing their 2014 roster to eight, the team announced Wednesday.

Two come by way of Pepperdine, freshman outfielder Jack Ross and freshman pitcher AJ Puckett, and one from Cal Poly, redshirt freshman catcher Brett Barbier.

Puckett, a 6-foot-4 righthander, was a 35th-round pick of the Oakland Athletics in the 2013 MLB draft out of De La Salle High School (Concord, Calif.).
