Quackenbush, Koscso earn minor-league promotions

Former USF baseball players Kevin Quackenbush and Jonathan Koscso, selected in this summer’s MLB draft, have made good early impressions with their respective big-league clubs, enough so that both have garnered a promotion at the minor-league level.
Quackenbush, a right-handed pitcher, is headed to the San Diego’s Class A affiliate in the Midwest League, the Fort Wayne TinCaps, after thriving in the closer’s role for the Eugene Emeralds, the Padres’ Class A affiliate in the short-season Northwest League.
Koscso, meanwhile, is headed to the Hudson Valley Renegades, Tampa Bay’s affiliate in the Class A short-season New York-Penn League. The second baseman began his pro career with the Princeton Rays, Tampa Bay’s rookie league affiliate in the Appalachian League.
Quackenbush was stellar during his time with Eugene, allowing just one earned run over 17 appearances spanning 20 2/3 innings. He posted a league-best nine saves and a strikeout-to-walk ratio better than 5:1 (33:6).
Koscso was batting .269 with a home run, three RBI and six runs scored through his first 13 games with Princeton.
