Jackets Lose A Pitcher to Baseball Draft

And a few other notes:

The Jackets had one player taken in baseball’s amateur draft. Pitcher Jake Shadle, who is from Graham, was drafted in the 32nd round by the San Diego Padres and plans to sign, Acker said. Shadle pitched in Kitsap’s exhibition opener. … Former Kitsap outfielder Brian Heere (2008) was drafted in the 41st round by the Cleveland Indians. … The Jackets have lost two pitchers to injuries before they arrived in Kitsap. Jeff Arnold, who plays at Morehead State, and John Koch, who played in Arkansas State, won’t join the team. … The Jackets picked up pitcher Chad Thompson, who sat out the season for Orange Coast College, a junior college in Costa Mesa, Calif. Thompson is a 6-foot-8 fireballer who can throw 95 mph and was drafted in the 24th round by the Philadelphia Phillies, but couldn’t come to terms. .
