Eau Claire Express Field Manager Dale Varsho announced today the addition of two right-handed pitchers.

Jake Cole, a 6-foot-4 and 245-pound hurler from Tucson, Ariz., is in his sophomore season for his hometown Pima Community College. This season he is the owner of a 5-3 record with nine starts under his belt in 16 appearances. In 69.1 innings pitched, he has 67 strikeouts opposed to only 26 walks.

Joining Cole is right-handed pitcher Ed Brandsema, a 6-foot, 175-pound junior from the University of Montevallo (Ala.). The Orlando, Fla., native has appeared in 18 games while starting 12 of them. He holds a 4-5 record and has 38 strikeouts in 72.2 innings pitched.

With the addition of Cole and Brandsema, the 2013 Eau Claire roster sits at 29, with one more player to be released next week. All teams in the Northwoods League will have 30 players active at all times for the first time since the 2007 season.

The Express begin their ninth season of Northwoods League play on May 29 in Madison to take on the Mallards.
