In the summer of 2013, he pitched 12 2/3rd innings for the Commodores posting 22 strikeouts.  Back at school Cleavinger picked up where he left off.  Garrett was named third team preseason All–American by Collegiate Baseball at the beginning of 2014, most assuredly due to his stout freshman season at school and sound summer season in Falmouth.  Garrett will look to carry this momentum into his second year with the Commodores.

Nick Cooney - LHP - Wesleyan University

Steven Duggar - OF - Clemson University 

Steven has been a talented and highly sought after prospect since high school.  Rated the #1 positional player in South Carolina by Perfect Game while in high school, Duggar carried that momentum into college by being named a Freshman All-American by Baseball America.  He started 62 games in RF for Clemson his freshman year all while being an All ACC Academic Team Member.  After playing for Cotuit in the CCBL during the summer of 2013, Duggar will look to reflect his talent and teamwork on this year’s Falmouth squad.

Matt Eckelman - RHP - Saint Louis University 

Eckleman joins the Falmouth Commodores from Saint Louis University where he has just completed his sophomore season with the Billikens.  Matt has more than earned his way onto this year’s Commodores roster after posing a 7-2 record with a 1.63 era and 9 saves this spring.  As a freshman, Eckleman set a freshman school record with 27 appearances and four saves while also tallying 6 wins which was good enough for third most by a freshman in Saint Louis University history.  Matt is sure to have a positive impact on the Commodores this summer.

Chandler Eden – RHP – Oregon State  

Prior to having a nice spring with Oregon State, Eden pitched in 13 games last summer with the Marysville Gold Sox; working 33 2/3 innings, he struck out 36 batters with opponents batting only .211 against him and went 2-0 with a 1.87 ERA.  This lead to Chandler being named the top prospect of the Horizon Air Summer Series.  In high school, Eden was named Conference pitcher of the year in his senior season and was rated the No. 98 high school player in North America by Baseball America.  Chandler will take his talents to the Cape this summer to be a part of the Falmouth Commodores.

In his first season with the Falmouth Commodores in 2013, Sam appeared in 30 games (including playoffs) with 24 hits, 5 doubles and 1 triple.  Gillikin has strong roots at Auburn where both parents and his brother graduated previously.  He is creating his own path there by making an impact in the outfield and at the plate for the Tigers.  The 33rd round pick by the Atlanta Braves in 2012, Gillikin is sure help out the Commodores again this season.

Conner Hale - 3B/1B - Louisiana State University 

Another Commodore veteran, Hale returns for his second summer in Falmouth.  Conner is a Junior College transfer to LSU from State College of Florida, a school where he excelled in baseball.  In 2013, his sophomore year, Hale batted .366 which earned him Suncoast Conference Player of the Year, 1st team all conference, and 1st team all state.  This past season with LSU, Conner started 55 games and hit .306.  Not just a star on the diamond, Hale was also a four year honor roll student in high school.

Jake Madsen - 1B - Ohio University 

Jake is a powerful left handed hitter at the plate who throughout his college career has been outstanding at the plate while also being a consistent fielder at first base.  In both of his first two seasons at Ohio University, Jake led the team in batting average while also playing in over 50 games.  This past spring, in his junior campaign for the Bobcats, Madsen started all 51 games and hit .322 at the plate.  The Commodores are excited to have the Jake's all around abilities on the team this summer.

Kevin Mooney - RHP - University of Maryland 

The second year Commodore rejoins the team this summer coming off of a sophomore season with the Terps where he has settled in nicely as the team’s preferred closer.

While still at North Harford High School, Mooney was a four-year letter winner helping him to be named the ESPN/Gatorade Player of the Year in Maryland in 2012, and was ranked as the top pitching prospect in the state by Perfect Game USA. He graduated top-five percent in his class from North Harford in 2012.

Trever Morrison – INF – Oregon State  

Joining his OSU teammate, Chandler Eden, Morrison looks to be an asset to the Commodores this summer.  A left-handed hitter, Trever gets on base and shows some power.  That surely helped him get selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 36th round of the 2013 draft.  Morrison passed, however, and chose to attend Oregon State where he is majoring in pre-business.  Trever finished with a good season for the Oregon State Beavers and looks to build on that with a strong summer with the Commodores.


Ryan Moseley - RHP - Texas Tech 

Ryan is a classic example of a Texas All Star.  A standout in High School in both football and baseball, Moseley earned all conference and all state honors in both sports in his high school career.  A star as a hitter and a pitcher in high school, Ryan was named the No. 57 Texas high school prospect by Perfect Game his senior year.  His accolades did not go unnoticed as Ryan was drafted in the 36th round of the 2013 MLB Draft by the Tampa Bay Rays, but instead chose to attend Texas Tech.  Moseley has not let up since entering college as he posted 50 1/3 inning for the Red Raiders in his freshman season while allowing opposing hitters to bat only .201 against him.  After starring in the 2014 College World Series, Ryan has joined to Commodores for his first stint in the CCBL.
