This week’s addition to the 2018 Hoptown Hoppers’ roster are both from former Hoppers’ Coach Trey Porras, now on the coaching staff at the University of New Mexico.
Drew Marrufo, C/RHP, University of New Mexico: Coach Moss said, “Drew may be one of the more exciting players to see in the league in terms of tools. He is a tremendous catch and throw guy behind the dish and will help the pitching staffs confidence by being able to control the running game. Drew also is going to see time on the mound for us the summer. He may feature one of the better fastballs in the league that runs into the low-mid 90s.” Twitter: @DrewMarrufo
Brian Coffey, LHP, University of New Mexico: Coach Moss said, “Brian is a big physical left hander that throws from a ¾ arm slot. His arm slot creates life and movement on the fastball. He can run the fastball into the upper 80s. He is another guy who can fill multiple roles and we expect him to be a big part of the success on the mound.” Twitter: @BCoffey57
