Bernstein latest CBU pitcher to land on MLB minors team
Riverside, Calif. (July 12, 2018) – Andrew Bernstein, former Lancer right-handed starting pitcher, was assigned to the Gulf Coast Rays, a minor league affiliate of the MLB Tampa Bay Rays on July 10. Bernstein’s signing continues California Baptist University's success of transitioning players—especially pitchers—to the pros.
Bernstein, who played as a senior with CBU this past season, is the ninth Lancer and eighth former CBU pitcher in the minor leagues this year. Bernstein transferred to CBU from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona for the 2017 season. During two seasons at CBU, he went 8-2 with a save and a combined 3.33 earned-run average on the mound. He added 96 strikeouts to just 21 walks over 102.2 innings.
As a senior, Bernstein battled through injuries but was 3-0 with a 1.77 ERA. He held his opposition to a .233 batting average and added 45 strikeouts to 14 walks over 45.2 innings.
His new team plays out of Port Charlotte, Florida.
