Kevin Newman Promoted to the West Virginia Power

By Jason Shetler

Kevin Newman has been promoted to the West Virginia Power as he will take Cole Tucker’s spot on the roster. Tucker is headed to the disabled list with apparent shoulder soreness.

Newman was the Pirates first round selection in this year’s draft. The former Arizona Wildcat shortstop played in 38 games for the West Virginia Black Bears where he batted .226 along with a .620 OPS. Newman however was very good on the defensive side, posting a .963 fielding percentage.
