Laber Returns for Fifth Season

04/01/2014 8:00 AM -

Jake Laber is returning to the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks for his fifth season, and he has a chance to rewrite the team record books. Laber, 27, enters this season within striking distance of franchise bests in four pitching categories. He currently is in third place in innings pitched (515.1 IP) and in fourth place in victories (38), strikeouts (318) and games started (81).

 

In 2013, Laber was 10-5 with a 3.82 ERA in 20 starts for Fargo-Moorhead. He finished tied for third in the American Association in victories. Laber pitched 117.2 innings and allowed 71 runs (50 earned) on 134 hits. He struck out 73 batters and walked 37.

 

Laber is a Fargo native who starred at Fargo North High School, Fargo Post 2 American Legion and at North Dakota State University. In his six-year professional career, which includes a season and a half in the Frontier League, Laber is 51-32 with a 4.17 ERA and 488 strikeouts in 123 games (113 starts). “Jake is as steady as they come,” said RedHawks Manager Doug Simunic. “He has reached double digit wins in three of the last four years, pitches deep into games and never misses a start. He’s our workhorse and we’ll lean on him again every five days this summer.”
