BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) -Former Mountaineer right-handed pitcher and outfielder Braden Zarnisky has inked a pro deal with the Philadelphia Phillies organization.

Zarbnisky missed all of 2019 with an injury but returned in 2020 with vengeance. Through 16 games, he batted .431 with 28 hits, 9 RBIs, and 16 runs. On the mound, he pitched 4.2 innings in relief, allowing just one hit and no runs.

He was a first team all-Big 12 selection as a sophomore. Zarb is the first Mountaineer to ink a pro baseball contract in 2020.
