March 15, 2019 – With the 2019 Texas Collegiate League season right around the corner, the Victoria Generals continue adding to their roster as they prepare for another season in the Texas Collegiate League.  This week, the Generals have announced the addition of two players from Our Lady of the Lake University. Pitcher Aaron Gonzales and utility player Jose Diaz will take the field for the Generals as they open their 11th season in the Texas Collegiate League. 

 

 "Our relationship continues to grow with the OLLU coaching staff as they continue to send players to help build our roster," commented Mike Yokum, Generals Vice President and General Manager. "Jeremy  (Flores) was a player and coach for the Generals and knows the caliber of player it takes to win in our league and always sends us some of his top players."

 

Right-handed pitcher Aaron Gonzales, a native of Houston, is currently in his junior season with the Saints. Gonzales played two seasons at Alvin Community College prior to transferring to the Saints this season. As of today (3-15-19) Gonzales has appeared in six games (6 starts), 34 innings pitched, 32 strike outs, 2.12 ERA, two complete games, with an opponent batting average against  of .195 on the season.  

 

"Aaron is a frontline type of arm that has tremendous stuff, ”commented Jeremy Flores, Assistant Coach for Our Lady of the Lake. "He will be a great asset for the Generals this summer and will compete at the highest level every day."

 

Jose Diaz, a native of Pinar del Rio, Cuba, is a utility player that will play numerous positions for the Generals this season. Diaz has appeared in 25 games, 80 at bats, 26 hits, 19 runs scored (team leader in all these categories) with eight doubles, a triple, nine RBI's and 10 walks. Diaz is also perfect on the bases with 13 stolen bases in 13 attempts. Diaz will also see some time on the mound this Summer for the Generals. 

 

"Diaz is a true five tool player that has the ability to play any position on the field, " commented Flores, "He is a lockdown defender in the outfield with plus pop from the plate and a very high ceiling and projectablilty."

 

The Victoria Generals will play 56 games  with 28 of the games being played here in Victoria at Riverside Stadium. The Generals will begin the 2019 at home on May 29th as they take on the Acadiana Cane Cutters.
