Alex Boshers arrives in Perth following three successful years playing with Independent Ball-club, Wichita Wingnuts where he has pitched to a 3.24 ERA with a 27-9 record. 

The 26-year-old right-hander will slot into the HEAT rotation and will put his hand in the mix to start come opening night.

 

Kyle Simon joins the HEAT roster from Independent Ball-club, New Britain Bees with expectations of making an impact on this HEAT rotation.

The 198cm right-hander was a fourth-round pick by the Baltimore Orioles in 2011 and has four years experience in the U.S. Minor League system. 

 

Travis McDonald returns to Perth having played State League for the Morley Eagles in 2009/10. The left-handed pitcher arrives from the Sydney Blue Sox with hopes of nailing down a spot in the HEAT bullpen for 2017/18.

The former Cincinnati Reds minor leaguer brings a wealth of experience to the HEAT pitching staff and will look to make an impact on the ABL following successful Tommy John surgery in 2014/15.

 

Jake Baker is back in Perth fresh from his first season playing rookie-ball for Detroit. The 19-year-old southpaw is a Perth product and could make his ABL debut for his home-town club in 2017/18.
