BELTON, TX (KXXV) -

Former University of Mary Hardin-Baylor baseball standout Aaron Barteau has signed a contact with the Tuscon Saguaros of the Pecos League. Barteau will report early next week and is expected to pitch out of the bullpen for the Saguaros. His first game on the active roster should come June 29th when Tuscon takes on the Monterey Amberjacks.

Barteau, a right-hander from Dallas Bishop Lynch High School, posted a 2-1 record and set a new UMHB Division III era single-season record with 13 saves as a senior in 2017. He led the Cru with 44 strikeouts and a 2.05 ERA in 26.1 innings over 20 appearances. Barteau held opponents to a .191 batting average and allowed just 18 hits and nine walks on the season. He also finished his career as UMHB’s all-time leader in saves and was a three-time All-Conference selection. Barteau was a D3baseball.com All-American and earned All-West Region honors from both D3baseball.com and the American Baseball Coaches Association as a senior.

“I’m pretty excited to have this opportunity and to get the chance to keep playing baseball for a couple more months,” Barteau said. “They are really interested in helping people move up the ladder, so maybe someone will see something and it could lead to a minor league deal. I’m just looking forward to the chance to keep playing baseball a little longer and we will see what happens.”

Tuscon plays in the Pacific Division of the 12-team Pecos League. The Saguaros are currently 22-8 on the season and are in second place in the Pacific Division. The Pecos League season runs through early August.
