NAVOJOA LINES UP SIX IMPORTS FOR 2010-11 SEASON

The Navojoa Mayos have firmed up their allowed six import players for the upcoming season, and returning LMP Manager of the Year Orlando Sanchez (who skippered Saltillo to the Mexican League pennant this summer) will be welcoming back three extraneros from his playoff team from last winter.

Pitchers Tim Gustafson, Brian Adams, Wes Timmons and Jason Lowey will be joined on the Mayos roster by second baseman Jose Macias and outfielder Matt Young. Gustafson was 5-1 for Navojoa last season while Adams finished 3-5 after a strong start. Young (.315) was the Mayos’ lone .300 hitter in 2009-10 and led the team with 56 runs and 21 stolen bases.

Gustafson and Young are Atlanta farmhands, as are Timmons and Lowey: Young and Timmons played in Class AAA, Gustafson was at AA and Lowey played A ball for the Braves after being signed out of the Frontier League. Adams (Reynosa) and Macias (Campeche) played in the Mexican League.
