According to his Twitter, Wilmington catcher Cam Gallagher has been added to the Team USA roster for the upcoming Pan Am Games.
He is a late add, considering the USA finished up their tune up games (three of them) this afternoon with a victory over the US College Team. Gallagher will also be the youngest in terms of professional experience, as all of his new teammates have played at the Double-A level or higher. A few have even played in the big leagues.
At the time of his addition to the team, Gallagher was hitting .236 with seven doubles and four home runs. He has been hitting the ball HARD, but right at people. Guessing the Blue Rocks are in need of a catcher.
Gallagher joins fellow KC Royals minor leaguers Casey Kotchman, Casey Coleman, and Buddy Baumann.
The US kicks off play in Toronto on Saturday, July 11th against Puerto Rico.
Best of luck to Cam and USA!
