Jesse Hoorelbeke traded to Somerset

According to the Atlantic League website, the Somerset Patriots have acquired first baseman Jesse Horrelbeke in a trade from Laredo of the American Association on March 2.

However, Horrelbeke is not listed on the Patriots roster. Which means he still needs to sign with the Patriots.

Atlantic League fans may remember Horrelbeke from his time with the Bridgeport Bluefish in 2007, 2008 and 2009. He is currently listed as a choice on the ballot for their 15th Anniversary team.

If Horrelbeke does sign with Somerset then this is a major acquisition for them. Horrelbeke has a .295 batting averge with 149 home runs, and 505 RBI in this independent career and would fit nicely into the middle of the Patriots batting order.
