MLB Teams Purchase Contracts of Two Legends Pitchers 
 
June 28, 2021 Lexington Legends Ballpark (Lexington, KY) – 
 
Tony Cingrani and Dustin Beggs, Lexington Legends Pitchers, have had their contracts purchased by the Chicago Cubs and New York Mets, respectively. Both Pitchers signed with the Legends before the 2021 Atlantic League season. 
 
Tony Cingrani (31) was originally drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 3rd round of the 2011 MLB June Amateur Draft from Rice University. He went on to pitch for the Reds from 2012-2017 before being traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers.  
 
Dustin Beggs (28) was drafted in the 16th round of the 2016 MLB June Amateur Draft by the Miami Marlins from University of Kentucky. Beggs played in the Marlins system for four seasons, reaching Triple-A (New Orleans) in 2019. 
 
“We have had tremendous success on the field this year. It is really great seeing MLB teams realizing that success and signing these young men to their organizations.” Said Legends President & CEO, Andy Shea. “We have truly enjoyed Dustin and Tony’s time spent in Cat Country and in Reds Country.”  
 
Cingrani and Beggs are the fifth and sixth Lexington Legends to have their contract purchased by an MLB franchise this season. They followed Nick Lovullo (Marlins), Tim Peterson (Angels), Mike Hauschild (Cubs) and Nate Peden (Brewers).
