RedWolves Add Trio of Arms to Roster

FLORENCE, S.C. -- The Florence RedWolves and first-year head coach Cory Brownsten announce the signing of Joshua Plummer, TJ Harmon and Tyler Walton for the 2018 summer.

"Very excited about all three of these guys and being able to help them become the best that they can be," Brownsten said.

Plummer is a freshman right-handed pitcher from the University of Tennessee. He is a native of Mechanicsville, Virginia. Plummer has appeared in four games this season with a 5.40 ERA and three strikeouts over 3.1 innings pitched.

"Excited to welcome Joshua to the RedWolves," Brownsten said. "He has been converted into a pitcher only from the outfield. Assistant coach [at Tennessee] and friend of mine from the Braves Josh Elander has told me how electric his arm is. Excited to watch him just get better and better each time out. I know with more time and reps on the bump he will get a better feel for his pitches and will find a comfort zone with pitching." 

Harmon is a junior right-handed pitcher from Ball State University. He is a native of Russiaville, Indiana.

"Happy to bring along a 3rd Cardinal to the team," Brownsten said. "This one an arm, I think being able to throw to his own college catcher Griffin will help a ton."

Harmon is 2-0 this season for the Cardinals in eight appearances with a 5.30 ERA and 21 strikeouts over 18.2 innings pitched.

"TJ will help us in the piggy and or bullpen," Brownsten said. "I have been watching Ball State throughout the year and he's been a big help for them and is dominate when he's ahead in the count and not walking guys. We all know when you walk guys and you are behind in the count hitting gets easier."

Walton is a sophomore right-handed pitcher from Delta State. He is a native of Germantown, Tennessee.

"Tyler is coming highly recommended from last year's coach Travis Graves," Brownsten said. "Travis has said nothing but great things about Tyler."

Prior to joining the Statesmen, Walton made seven appearances including two starts striking out six over 7.2 innings for the University of Memphis. In 13 appearances this season for Delta State, he is 5-0 with a 3.48 ERA and 28 strikeouts.   

"Tyler is a transfer from Memphis," Brownsten said. "He as well will be a great fit with our staff. He can either start or be a guy out of the pen. Tyler is a pitcher that I love because he doesn't give free bases. He has great command with all three pitches and has only walked seven in 29 innings this year."
