Bridgeport, CT - The Bridgeport Bluefish today announced the signing of pitcher Scott Maine. Maine enters his eighth season in professional baseball and his first in the Atlantic League.

“We’re excited about the addition of Scott to our pitching staff,” says Bluefish manager Willie Upshaw. “He’s a proven veteran that will be an asset to our bullpen and in the late innings.”

Last year, the Florida native pitched for two Miami Marlins affiliates splitting time with the Triple-A New Orleans Zephyrs and the Rookie League Gulf Coast Marlins. The former Major Leaguer appeared in a combined 21 games out of the bullpen with a 4.19 ERA, three saves and 26 strikeouts in 19.1 innings.

The 29-year-old has played three years in The Show, pitching for the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians from 2010-2012. In 50 Major League games, the southpaw has a 2-3 record with a 5.59 ERA and 48 strikeouts in 46.2 innings.

He began his professional career in 2007 with the Yakima Bears of the short-season Class A Northwest League after being drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the sixth round of the MLB Amateur Draft. In 222 Minor League outings, the reliever has a 19-15 record with a 3.33 ERA, 43 saves and 323 strikeouts in 284.2 innings.

Maine attended the University of Miami and played in the Cape Cod Baseball League in 2006 for the Brewster Whitecaps.

The Bridgeport Bluefish are members of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball and play their home games at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard. For further information, call 203-210-BLUE (2583) or visit BridgeportBluefish.com.
