Windsor to Make Debut on Monday
July 16, 2006
Baltimore, Maryland - Former Titan standout Jason Windsor will make his Major League debut on July 17 for the Oakland A's to become the 43nd former Cal State Fullerton baseball player to participate in a big league game, and third this season.
The 2004 College World Series Most Outstanding Player, Windsor, met up with the team Sunday night at Camden Yards in Baltimore on his 24th birthday, and is slated to start against the Orioles' Adam Loewen Monday afternoon at 4:05 PT.
A third round pick of Oakland in 2004, the 6-foot-2, 235-pound right-hander was a combined 12-1 with Triple-A Sacramento and Double-A Midland this season, and will join former Titans Mark Kotsay and Kirk Saarloos on the active Athletics roster. Mike Rouse, another former Fullerton player playing with the A's, was optioned back to Sacramento on June 30.
Windsor made headlines in 2004 for the Titans as he tossed over 300 pitches in an eight-day span, earning a save and two complete-game victories to beat No. 1 Texas in the College World Series. He started the `04 campaign going 1-4, but won his last 12 decisions, nine of which were complete games.
Earlier this season, Rouse and Wes Littleton (Texas) made their major league debuts.
