by Michael Baldwin Published: April 11, 2013

RH Ross Seaton

Age: 23

Selected in the third round in 2008 out of high school, the Tulsa native grew up in the Houston area. Seaton was 8-9 with a 3.93 ERA last season, the bulk of his innings in Double-A before a late season promotion to Oklahoma City.


LH Kevin Chapman

Age: 25

Acquired in a trade with Kansas City a year ago, Chapman went 6-3 with a 2.64 ERA last year in Double-A. A fourth round pick in 2010 out of the University of Florida, Chapman was a mid-season Texas League All-Star.

RH C.J. Fick

Age: 27

Acquired off waivers midway through last season Fick pitched in 20 major league games last season, 18 with the Astros, two with the Cardinals. Since he was moved full time to the bullpen three years ago, Fick has posted a 3.56 ERA.

LH Wes Musick

Age: 26

A ninth-round pick out of the University of Houston four years ago, Musick pitched at three levels last season, posting a 3.04 ERA. Musick has started 40 games but also has spent some time in the bullpen.

RH Jose Valdez

Age: 30

The RedHawks' returning closer. The Dominican Republic native has recorded a franchise-record 30 saves for the RedHawks. Valdez compiled 21 saves last season and already has two saves this season.

RH Josh Zeid

Age: 26

A converted starter, last year was his first entire season as a reliever. Zeid struck out 66 in 561/3 innings but had a 5.59 ERA in Double-A. He made three appearances with Team Israel during the 2013 World Baseball Classic qualifying.
