Dufault still pitching in
- Updated: April 7, 2023
Rocket Cit Trash Pandas (Angels)
Dufault, 24, began the year with the Rocket City (Ala.) Trash Pandas, the Los Angeles Angels affiliate in the Southern League. The Angels selected Dufault, a right-handed pitcher, in the 16th round of the 2021 MLB Draft, following his junior season at Northeastern.
He finished his college career as Northeastern’s closer and left the program with 12 career saves – fourth most in the program’s history. He had 100 strikeouts in 64 appearances with Northeastern, and averaged 8.3 strikeouts per nine innings.
Dufault went 1-2 with a 4.93 ERA in 34 games (45.2 innings pitched) with the High-A Tri-City (Wash.) Dust Devils of the Northwest League last season. He went 10-0 with a 0.96 ERA in his sophomore season at Windham High School, which won the NHIAA Division II championship that season.
