MOORHEAD, Minn. – Bradford Area High School alum Ryan Boyer had his contract transferred from the Milwaukee Milkmen of the American Association to the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday, the American Association announced.

Boyer, who went to Pitt-Bradford before finishing his collegiate career at Canisius, had a strong pro debut for the Milkmen in 2021. The right-handed pitcher posted a 2.72 ERA in 30 appearances, 28 coming out of the bullpen. He struck out 64 batters in 46 ⅓ innings, limiting opponents to a 1.12 WHIP.

Boyer compiled an ERA of 3.59 during his time with Pitt-Bradford and Canisius, including a 3.52 ERA during his final collegiate season at Canisius in 2021 and a 2.84 ERA during his final season at Pitt-Bradford in 2020.

The American Association is an MLB partner league, which describes as: “These leagues will collaborate with MLB on initiatives to provide organized baseball to communities throughout the United States and Canada while working to expand the geographic reach of the game.”

The Blue Jays minor league spring training schedule has yet to be released. Major League Baseball is currently in a lockout.
