The Boise Hawks front office added three new arms to the bullpen Saturday, including the Chicago Cubs second-round pick in 2013, Rob Zastryzny.
Zastryzny, a right-handed pitcher, struck out 82 hitters in 90 innings last season at the University of Missouri. He finished with a 2-9 record in 13 starts, and was with the Cubs rookie league team in Mesa when he found out he had been assigned to Boise.
"The coach called me into the office and I was like: 'I'm either in trouble, or I'm going to Boise,'" laughed Zastryzny. "He called me in and was like: 'Rob, I need you to sit down. You're headed to Boise.' It was a huge relief, because I was hot down in Arizona."
Also coming to Boise- pitchers Zach Godley and Dae-Eun Rhee. Godley allowed two hits in a run in one inning of work in Mesa. Rhee is a veteran that played for the Hawks in 2009, and is rehabbing his way back to the AA Tennessee Smokies.
The Hawks have also placed outfielder Jacob Hanneman and pitcher Carlos Martinez on the 7-day disabled list with undisclosed injuries.
