MLB verteran Mike Fontenot (INF) (usually 2B) was activated from the temporary inactive list and assigned to LHV today.
The 31 year old, Lousianna native, was drafted by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in the 21st round of the 1999 MLB June Amateur Draft and the Baltimore Orioles in the 1st round (19th) of the 2001 MLB June Amateur Draft
Mike brings another (veteran) lefty bat to LHV and has 6 years of MLB service (Cubs/Giants) under his belt. During his MLB career he hit .263 with 26 HR, 266 SO, and 133 BB. Wonder how he hits with runners in scoring position?
In 2004 Fontenot played for the Ottawa Lynx which (as you know) eventually became the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.
So, welcome back? Or perhaps welcome aboard Mike!
