Nesseth continues to work in Arizona Fall League
Windom native Mike Nesseth continued his extended 2013 baseball season through the month of October, pitching in the Arizona Fall League.
The AFL is an extended league designed to give minor league players additional experience. Teams are comprised of select minor league players from several different organizations.
Nesseth has pitched in six games for the Peoria Javelinas of the AFL, all out of the bullpen. In six appearances, Nesseth has an 0-1 record with a 9.00 earned run average.
Nesseth's most recent outing, coming last night, was a rough one. He gave up six hits and five earned runs in two innings of work. Prior to that, he had not allowed a run in three of his previous four appearances.
Nesseth pitches in the Philadelphia Phillies organization. Last season, Nesseth started the year in High-Class A ball in Clearwater, Fla. By May, he had been promoted to Class AA Reading, Pa. Late in the season, he was promoted to Class AAA Lehigh Valley, Pa.
