Lynchburg, Va. - Right-hander Jonathan Teaney has been added to the Cleveland Indians Arizona Fall League roster in 2019. Teaney will join fellow Indians farmhands Gavin Collins , Brock Hartson , Kirk McCarty and Nolan Jones as a member of the Mesa Solar Sox. The Solar Sox are a team comprised of prospects from the Cleveland Indians, Chicago Cubs, Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics organizations.
Teaney, 23, had a breakout season in 2019. He appeared in 46 games, leading the Carolina League in that category among relief pitchers. The Lancaster, Calif. native went 3-2 with a career-best 2.77 ERA across a career-high 55.1 innings. After posting an ERA of 5.79 in April, Teaney allowed only 11 earned runs in 46 innings the rest of the season, good for a 2.15 ERA. He was selected by Cleveland in the 20th Round of the 2017 MLB Draft out of the University of San Diego.
The Arizona Fall League season begins on Wednesday, September 18 and goes through the championship game on Saturday, October 26. The league utilizes four Phoenix-area, state-of-the-art Spring Training venues, with two stadiums hosting two teams each.
