Koutnik said, "We are very excited to add CJ into our Team DeMarini family and like what we see on the mound. He adds another top level pitcher to our organization and he will only get better as he works with Team DeMarini's pitching coach Tampa Rays - RC Lichtenstein this winter".
The 5-10 lefty is a mid 80's guy that has command of three pitches and also display's a good pick-off move to first base. "CJ is a competitor on the mound and he is going to give you everything he has when he is on the field" We like that Koutnik adds. CJ started play today with Team DeMarini pitching three scoreless innings in a scrimmage game to prepare for the upcoming tournaments.
CJ will be joining the Koutnik team by playing in the Perfect Game Kernels Foundation Tournament in Cedar Raids, IA September 21-24th and heading down to Ft. Myers, FL on October 4-8th to play in the Perfect Game Underclass World Championships which are two of the largest scouted events of the year. Over 100 colleges will be at each event.
