HarbourCanucks Corner - March 16th edition

This is our latest installment of HarbourCanucks Corner, our weekly update on the Canadians signed to full-season contracts by the Victoria HarbourCats for the summer of 2014.

Brandon Feldman made his first two appearances on the mound for the Otero Junior College Rattlers over the last week and the Victoria Eagles product threw a scoreless inning of relief in each outing. He gave up two hits and two walks, while striking out two batters. Feldman has also played some right field this season and he’s batting .125 with a .364 on-base percentage in 16 at-bats.

Cuesta College’s Nick Rutckyj went two-for-six with a walk and a run scored this week. The left fielder has appeared in 18 of his team’s 19 games and he’s hitting .167 with two homers and seven RBI on the season.

Kelly Norris-Jones started one of the University of Ilinois’ three games this week. Unfortunately, he went zero-for-four to lower his batting average to .200 in 15 at-bats this year. His on-base percentage is still a respectable .333.

Seattle U was scheduled to play a road series against Chicago State this weekend, but a snowstorm forced the postponement of all three games. Griffin Andreychuk started one of the two midweek games for the Redhawks, but he went zero-for-three at the plate to lower his batting average to the .160 mark. However, he did play errorless defense at second base, so hopefully his recent fielding issues are behind him.

  • Hunter Mercado-Hood went 5-for-12 this week with two RBI for the University of San Diego Toreros and the freshman right fielder is now hitting .381 with no homers and 8 RBI in 42 at-bats. Mercado-Hood will likely be one of the starting outfielders for the HarbourCats this summer.
