The Missoula PaddleHeads Professional Baseball Club Announced a pair of roster transactions on Wednesday highlighted by the return of a familiar face in the form of infielder Jose Reyes. In a separate transaction, Missoula also announced the signing of former Detroit Tigers farmhand Trevin Esquerra Wednesday.

Reyes returns to Missoula after appearing as a member of the Osprey in 2019. Reyes appeared in 58 games that season with Missoula holding a .259 average with 11 doubles, 3 home runs, and 32 RBIs in 58 games. The native of the Dominican Republic also spent the previous three seasons in the Diamondbacks system playing in the Dominican Summer League. Reyes held a .280 average in 740 at-bats in his time in affiliated baseball.

Esquerra makes his way to the PaddleHeads after spending a portion of this season with the West Michigan Whitecaps of the Midwest League. Prior to his time with the Tigers organization, Esquerra was a standout at Loyola Marymount University from 2017-2020. The San Diego product enjoyed his best season in 2019 finishing with a .322 average with 16 home runs, 20 doubles, and 60 RBIs in 59 games. Esquerra would be acknowledged as second-team All-Conference selection that season.

After a three game road series against Billings that begins Wednesday, the PaddleHeads are set to return to Missoula on June 11-14 facing the Mustangs. The homestand is set to feature a lot of fun at the ballpark highlighted by a Cash Giveaway Night, and Brunch at the Ballpark.
