GRAND PRARIE, Texas The Gary SouthShore RailCats have announced the signing of right-handed pitcher Dustin Angiel to his first professional contract on Monday. Angiel is a recent graduate of Angelo State University in Texas, where he posted a 3-1 record and a 4.30 ERA in 23 relief appearances during his senior season in college. During his junior season, the Rockwall, Texas native did not allow an earned run in seven relief outings.

Angiel becomes the third pitcher from Angelo State to sign with the RailCats during the 2017 season and joins fellow right-handed pitcher Jake Matthys as Angelo State alums who are currently on the active roster. Prior to playing at Angelo State, he played at Midland College in Texas.

Gary continues their three-game road series against Texas on Monday night at 7:05 p.m. Southpaw Billy Waltrip (1-3, 3.11) gets the ball for the AirHogs in the middle game of the series while the RailCats have yet to announce their starter.
