Drew Coffey pitched for the Boulders’ Can-Am League rival, the Newark Bears, last season when they played in the Atlantic League. The lefty was originally drafted by the Kansas City Royals in 18th round of the 2004 MLB Amateur Draft out of high school. After two years in the Royals farm system, Coffey jumped around between independent baseball and low A ball, playing in the Colorado Rockies system for two seasons.
He spent time with the Yuma Scorpions of the Golden League and the Bears in 2010. He pitched a combined 44.0 innings with both teams, racking up a 4.91 ERA in 26 games striking out 29 batters and finishing with a record of 1-1.
