TGB Signs Michael Theofanopoulos
TGB is pleased to announce the signing of Minnesota Twins prospect Michael Theofanopoulos. The left-handed pitcher was taken in the 30th round in 2014 after playing three years at the University of California, Berkeley. Theofanopoulos enjoyed a breakout year in 2016, splitting the season between the class A Cedar Rapids Kernels and class A-Advanced Fort Myers Miracle. The Pleasanton, California native posted career bests in ERA (2.20), batting average against (.179) and WHIP (1.16) while also striking out 84 batters in just 65 and 1/3 innings pitched. Theofanopoulos has reported to spring training in Fort Myers and could start the year at Double-A with the Chattanooga Lookouts.
