LINCOLN — The Saltdogs added two more pitchers to the 2014 roster, signing three-time All-Star and Triple-A veteran RHP Nick Green, as well as RHP T.J. Bozeman.
Green has pitched in the Atlantic League the past three seasons, twice earning All-Star honors, and projects to be the Saltdogs' number-two starter behind former big leaguer Joe Bisenius.
The 29-year old from East Point, Ga. has played 10 professional seasons – including two at the Triple-A level and four in Double-A – for the Angels, Dodgers and Brewers organizations.
Green was named to the Double-A Texas League's midseason and postseason all-star teams in 2007, during which he went 10-8 with a 3.68 ERA.
Drafted in the 11th round by the Astros in 2003 – before ultimately signing with the Angels in 2004 – the 6-foot-4 hurler has notched double-digit wins in three different campaigns and pitched at least 150 innings in five.
He has logged more than 170 frames in three separate seasons, most recently in 2012 for Southern Maryland when he posted a 3.58 ERA.
For his career, Green has compiled a 66-64 record with a 4.35 ERA in more than 1,270 innings of work.
Bozeman comes to Lincoln with three years of professional experience, all with the Fort Worth Cats. Bozeman went 4-0 with a 3.78 ERA and a dominant 10.4 strikeout-per-nine inning ratio last season.
In 2012, the 24-year old from Groesbeck, Texas went 2-3 with a 2.15 ERA in 34 games, earning three saves.
