Mechals Gets New Sox

The Kelowna Falcons are proud to announce alumni Kade Mechals has been drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the Major League Baseball Draft.

Mechals pitched for the Falcons in 2017 and was outstanding. He finished that summer 4-0 with a 3.30 ERA and struck out 34 batters. His Falcons debut was nothing short of impressive, on June 18, 2017 Mechals threw eight shutout innings, striking out five Yakima Pippins and recorded the win. In his next outing he threw a complete game four hitter against the Bend Elks fanning 11.

Yesterday Mechals was selected in the fourth round, 112th overall by the White Sox. Once the season begins he’ll no doubt report to the White Sox rookie ball affiliate the Great Falls Voyagers in Montana.

The Falcons 2020 season meanwhile was cancelled due to COVID-19. The organization has already begun recruiting for next summer.
