Newby owns a 9-6 record with a 3.01 ERA and three saves over 116 relief appearances in his three seasons with the Somerset Patriots. “We are extremely excited Kyler has chosen to join us for the 2017 season,” said Somerset Patriots manager Brett Jodie. “Kyler has been a huge piece in our bullpen while he has been with us. He can do any role necessary to help the team and is effective in all of them. We may even see Kyler start if the need arises. He really understands Somerset and has become one of our team leaders.” The Mesa Community College alum has 12 years of service across the minor leagues, including stints in the Arizona Diamondbacks, Baltimore Orioles, Oakland Athletics and Angels organizations. He reached Triple-A in all four organizations: 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, respectively.Newby also received a call up to the Major Leagues with Arizona in 2011, but did not end up pitching in a game.
