Help on the way for Saratoga Phillies

Two more players arrived in the Spa City to join the Saratoga Phillies for Tuesday's game, freshmen Kellen St. Luce and teammate Jordan Wormsley from Vanderbilt were dressed for the home opener and University of Virginia freshman David Coleman is expected to arrive on Wednesday, but will not arrive in time to make the trip to Watertown.

Luce, a left-handed pitcher stands 6-foot-4 and is imposing at 225 pounds.

He was the 2007 Athlete of the Year in the Virgin Islands as voted by the V.I. Daily News and named Athlete of the Year at All Saints Cathedral School. He was selected in the 37th round of the MLB draft by Florida.

His teammate, Wormsley, is a red shirt freshman, hitting .538 in 10 games going 7-for-13 with two runs scored, a triple and three RBI.

He spent last summer at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. competing in the Florida Collegiate Instructional League. Batted .345 with five doubles and seven stolen bases in 12 attempts.

The two-year team captain was a Louisville Slugger pre-season All-American and earned all-state honor mention and All-American honors after hitting .500 and was the Divison II East Region Player of the Year.

Coleman brings a wealth of playing experience to the Phillies and another left-handed bat to the lineup.

During his freshman year, he batted .288 in 50 games, getting 163 at-bats with 47 hits. He scored 24 runs, hit nine doubles and a triple with 21 RBI. He should fit in with manager Kevin Graber's small ball plans, stealing 10 bases, but was also caught during six other attempts.
