LYNN, Mass. -- The Futures Collegiate Baseball League’s North Shore Navigators have added two more right-handers to the pitching staff following successful spring seasons at their respective schools.

The two newest additions to the 2020 North Shore club are Stanford’s Max Meier and Southern New Hampshire’s Ricky Alexy. President and General Manager Derek January officially introduced both pitchers on Wednesday.

Meier made an immediate impact during his freshman season with the Cardinal as he started four of the six games in which he pitched. The 6-foot-1, 202-pound Belmont native went 1-2 with a 3.07 ERA over 14.2 innings of work, striking out 11 while holding opponents to a .218 batting average. He capped off his high school career as a two-time Independent School League All-Star and 2019 Perfect Game First Team All-Region performer for Lawrence Academy in addition to representing the Northeast in the 2018 Area Code Games.

Scouting Report: Athletic RHP with 90-94mph fastball … above-average secondary pitches with good command … fun to watch … MLB comp: Tim Hudson.

Alexy was a walk-on pitcher at Wentworth Institute of Technology in 2018 before transferring to the Division 2 Penmen this season. The former two-sport captain at Newton North High School enjoyed an outstanding start to his SNHU career, striking out five and walking just one over 5.2 hitless and scoreless innings. His partial season included a five-out save against Bridgeport in February and appearances against nationally-ranked Colorado Mesa and New York Tech.

Scouting Report: Outstanding command of his pitches … sits 88-91mph with a wipeout slider … MLB comp: Aaron Nola.
