SSU’s Harkin signs with Brewers

Sonoma State University senior Scott Harkin has signed a free-agent contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, becoming the second member of the Seawolves’ 2013 squad to advance to professional baseball. He follows pitcher Harmen Sidhu, who was selected in last weekend’s MLB draft by the Tampa Bay Rays.

Harkin was primarily a shortstop at Sonoma State, but was signed by the Brewers as a pitcher. He made eight appearances in relief for the Seawolves this season, and was 2-0 with a save and a 2.25 earned run average in eight innings of work.

He is the second Seawolves player to sign with the Brewers, joining Kevin Wong, who signed as a free agent in 1991. Harkin is the 85th SSU baseball player to sign a professional contract since 1986.
