The contract of Rascals right-hander Dane Stone has just been purchased by the Chicago White Sox organization. The right-hander has been very impressive for Brook and the Rascals this season after becoming a regular starter for the first in his professional career. Through four starts Stone has a 3-1 record with a minute ERA of 0.93 in 29 innings.
A former member of the Miami Marlins organization, Stone signed with River City this offseason, where he began to adapt to his new starting role. Stone becomes the 33rd River City Rascal to be signed by a Major League Baseball organization—the last being catcher Danny Canela who was signed by the Chicago Cubs this offseason after being named Frontier League Rookie of the Year in 2013.
Manager Steve Brook notes on this special occasion, “we feel incredibly proud and grateful to have had Dane as a part of our organization. He had a phenomenal start to our season and will be greatly missed, but our ultimate goal is to get these guys into affiliated ball, so we are honored to hand him over to the White Sox. The River City Rascals organization wishes Stone the best of luck with Chicago and hopes to see him soon in The Show!
