Biography:
Molleken enters his second season with the Somerset Patriots and second in the Atlantic League. The former big leaguer went 3-2 with three saves over 26 relief appearances with the Patriots last year. He also struck out 28 batters against 11 walks over 23.2 innings pitched and only allowed a run in seven of his 26 appearances. 
 
Additionally, Molleken enjoyed a notable stretch from August 25th through September 4th where he tossed six-straight scoreless relief appearances without allowing a single baserunner (18-straight batters retired). He also tossed two shutout innings of relief in the postseason.
 
The Regina, Canada native made his Major League debut on July 4, 2016 for the Detroit Tigers. He appeared in four games with the Tigers that year (all in relief), striking out eight batters over 8.1 innings pitched. Molleken followed up 2016 with a 2.76 ERA over 13 relief appearances with Triple-A Toledo to begin 2017 before he joined the Patriots.
 
Originally a 15th round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2003, Molleken has also spent time in the Colorado Rockies, Milwaukee Brewers, Cleveland Indians, and Tigers organizations. He has pitched almost exclusively at the Triple-A level for each of the six seasons prior to joining Somerset. The 6’4” righty is 17-10 with a 4.14 ERA and 268 strikeouts over 200 appearances (nine starts) at the Triple-A level.
