T-Bones add Collier to the roster

KANSAS CITY, Kan.– The Kansas City T-Bones announced today that the club has signed right-handed pitcher Tommy Collier for the 2018 season after acquiring him earlier in the week via trade with the Sugarland Skeeters of the Atlantic League. 

Tommy Collier, joins the T-Bones after spending 2011-2016 with the Detroit Tigers organization and reaching AA Erie in 2016, posting a career 41-37 record and a 3.88 ERA in 650 innings with Detroit. The last two winters Collier has pitched in the Venezuela Winter League for La Guaira, pitching in 64 innings with a 4.22 ERA over the two combined seasons.

Collier was the 22nd round pick of the Tigers in the 2011 MLB June Amateur Draft out of San Jacinto College in Houston, Texas. He went 4-1 with a 1.85 ERA in his rookie season with Connecticut in the New York/Penn League in 2011. In 2012 he made the jump to low A West Michigan going 9-8, and he led all the starters on the club with a 2.74 ERA in 24 starting nods.

In 2013, 2014 and 2015, Collier split time between High A Lakeland and AA Erie and spent 2013 in the prestigious Arizona Fall League with Mesa.  Collier combined for a 4.43 ERA in 2013 in 67 innings and in 2014 tossing 133 innings with a 5.75 ERA for Detroit.  The right-hander went 7-8 in 2015 with a 3.70 ERA in 155.2 innings combined at both stops.

At AA Erie in 2016, the Houston, Texas native won a career high nine games in 25 starts with 130.2 innings with a 4.20 ERA. Collier led the SeaWolves in wins and innings pitched that season, adding 87 strike outs.  In 2008, Collier was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers out of high school in the 29th round of the MLB Draft from Cypress-Fairbanks High School in Cypress, Texas. He was then drafted in the 49th round by Toronto in 2009 while at San Jacinto College but did not sign.
