Photos from Siena's season-opening 8-1 loss at Central Florida (2/14/14)
GENERAL: Big, left-handed developing pitcher...Strong work ethic and desire...Expected to blossom into key MAAC contributor...Active in community
BEFORE SIENA: An All-League selection as a junior and senior at CNS...Racked up 57 strikeouts in 51 innings pitched as a junior, and dominated summer ball in 2011, posting a 7-1 record for the New York Thunder.
AS A FRESHMAN: Saw limited action, making nine appearances out of the bullpen ... Threw 10.1 innings with four strike outs... Posted a 4.35 ERA.
ROSSI ON CUMMINGS: "Kyano saw limited time last year out of the bullpen. As with most freshmen his command was an issue. He's coming off a fine fall and the staff is hoping he continues to grow to help the staff as a spot starter and situational reliever. He can be a major player out of the bullpen if he figures it out. As the staff has only two other healthy lefty's on the staff he will be called upon in much more this season."
