Kirwan Makes His Way Back to Beloit

August 26, 2008 - Midwest League (MWL) - Beloit Snappers News Release

Brian Kirwan will rejoin the Snappers tonight after spending the last few months on the disabled list with a right shoulder/elbow injury. Kirwan will be in uniform in time for tonight's game, as the Snappers take on the Kane County Cougars in game two of a four-game set at 7:00pm.

Prior to his injury, Brian was 4-4 with a 5.06 ERA in 13 appearances. Kirwan started 12 of those games totaling 64 innings and 30 strikeouts. The right-hander has allowed 77 hits and 36 earned runs during his time as a Snapper this year.

Brian was drafted by the Twins' in the 11th round of the 2005 First-Year Player draft. He went 2-8 for the Snappers last year with a 5.30 ERA in 18 starts with 67 strikeouts and 37 walks. Kirwan is the lone returning starting pitcher from last year's Western Division Championship club.

The move, effective today, puts Beloit's active roster back at 24, one below the MWL maximum.
