Roe enters his first season with the Somerset Patriots and third in the Atlantic League. The Rutgers University alum has spent the majority of his last two seasons with the New Britain Bees, where he split time between work as a starting pitcher and as a reliever. He went 5-3 over 12 appearances (10 starts) in 2016 with New Britain before he established himself as an All-Star relief pitcher last year.
The Plainfield, New Jersey native appeared in 58 games for the Bees last year (tied for ninth in the league) with a 7-6 record, one save and a 3.63 ERA. Roe held his ERA under 2.00 and his WHIP (walks/hits per innings pitched) under 1.00 for the first two months of the season and finished the first half with a 2.31 ERA over 30 relief appearances. That included an impressive 14-game stretch from May 11th to June 11th over which he did not an unearned run (16.2 innings).
Roe spent the first three years of his professional career with the Rockland Boulders (Can-Am League) primarily as a relief pitcher. He finished up 2015 with the Garden State Greys before joining the Quebec Capitals to begin the 2016 season. He appeared in 11 games with Quebec before he signed with New Britain to end the 2016 season.
The former Scarlet Knight owns a 23-21 record with three saves and 215 strikeouts over his five-year professional career.
