Heading into the season’s final two weeks, the Brazos Valley Bombers bolstered their lineup with the additions of three players. Freddy Carmona, Danny Hernandez and Taylor Zambreski will look to provide the Bombers with talent and depth as they prepare to make a deep run in the TCL playoffs.
After transferring from Ranger College to Eastern New Mexico, Carmona quickly proved why he is such a highly touted player. Playing catcher and shortstop for the Greyhounds, Carmona put together a career season, leading the team in nearly every offensive category. The switch-hitter’s .397 batting average, eight home runs and 47 RBI were nothing short of spectacular, but his defensive ability will be vital as the Bombers enter the TCL Playoffs. Serving as the starting catcher, he threw out 17 of 36 potential base stealers and only committed five errors.
