Farmingdale State Baseball Coach Keith Osik has signed a minor-league contract with the Washington Nationals' Triple-A affiliate in New Orleans. Osik, 37, who played nine seasons with Pittsburgh, Milwaukee and Baltimore, is expected to be a September call-up for Washington.
Coach Osik will return to Farmingdale State in October for fall practice.
In his first start for the Zephyrs on Thursday night, Osik went 1-for-3 in a 3-1 win over the Portland Beavers. New Orleans will go on the road for a four-game series with division-leader Albuquerque beginning Friday. Game time is scheduled for 8:05 PM CT.
