Canaries Will Need To Replace Serna

Canaries Will Need To Replace Serna
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Sioux Falls Canaries are suddenly searching for a new shortstop, but it comes for good reason.

The Philadelphia Phillies have purchased the contract of Canaries shortstop KC Serna, the American Association league office announced on Friday.

The Canaries previously acquired the highly-regarded player in a December trade with the Amarillo Sox.

Baseball America ranked Serna, 24, the top prospect in all of independent baseball following a standout season with Amarillo in which he provided sparkling defense and hit .304. He rapped 26 doubles and swiped 17 bases while playing all 100 games. The leading baseball publication called him a “true shortstop” that played the “best defense in the league.”

“We’re always happy when any of our players gets a chance like this to advance their career.  It’s what we’re about,” Canaries manager Steve Shirley said. “KC is certainly worthy of this opportunity. We wish him the best.”

Several independent players named to the Baseball America list over the years have landed in the big leagues or higher tiers of the minors. (Daniel Nava, the No. 1 independent prospect in 2008, was an everyday play with the world champion Boston Red Sox this past season.)

Serna played one season in the Cleveland Indians system in 2011, batting .265 in 42 games. The Ventura, Calif., native played collegiately at the University of Oregon.

The Canaries’ 2014 campaign follows their highest attended season ever. It will be their 22nd season and ninth as members of the independent American Association. For more information about business partnerships or season tickets in 2014, call the Canaries at (605) 336-6060.
