SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KEYC) — Former Minnesota State Mavericks pitcher Dalton Roach will be suiting up for the St. Louis Cardinals’ Double-A affiliate this season.

The Eau Claire, Wisconsin native made 49 appearances on the mounds for the Mavericks, including 43 starts.


His 30 wins make him the winningest pitcher in program history. Roach also holds the program record at Minnesota State for most career strikeouts and career innings pitched.
