Skeeters Announce 2019 Spring Training Roster

The Sugar Land Skeeters today announced their Spring Training roster for the 2019 season, including 18 former Major Leaguers and 13 returnees from the team’s 2018 Atlantic League Championship squad.

Amongst the Major Leaguers on the Skeeters Spring Training roster are 11-year Major League veterans -- and Houston natives -- James Loney and Mark Lowe. Loney, who spent most of his career as a first baseman, will appear as a two-way player for the Skeeters, as well as serving as a player-coach. Also, amongst the former Major Leaguers are infielders Cody Asche and Ryan Schimpf and right-handers Kevin McGowan and Christian Bergman.

Returnees from the 2018 roster include catcher Albert Cordero, infielders Alvaro Rondon and Juan Silverio, outfielders Anthony Giansanti and Denis Phipps and right-handers Dallas Beeler, Felipe Paulino, Mitch Talbot, Konner Wade and Matt West.

The Skeeters will play four exhibitions against local junior colleges during Spring Training, with games against San Jacinto, Alvin, Wharton and Galveston. The Skeeters will take on Wharton College on Saturday, April 20, which will be the only game open to the public. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and admission to Constellation Field will be free.
