Barrett will rejoin Bobcats in 2010

Drew Barrett, who hit .265 in 36 games for the Bobcats in 2009, has re-signed with the team for next summer.

Spending most of his playing time on the left side of the infield at shortstop and third base, Barrett, of Murray, added 16 RBI and 16 runs for Marion in the latest KIT League season. The left-handed hitter posted a .349 on-base percentage, drawing 12 bases on balls.

Barrett's father, David, reports his son will be playing baseball this spring at Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Ky., on an academic scholarship.

"He's really bulked up this year," David said of son's preparation for the Blue Raiders' upcoming season.

General Manager Gordon Guess is in the process of finalizing the 2010 roster, with only a few spots left to fill for manager Steve Fowler third year at the helm.
