Cougars introduce Skulina, Dore

GENEVA – The Kane County Cougars, in conjunction with the Cubs, announced Tuesday that pitcher Tyler Skulina and outfielder Jose Dore have joined the Cougars from Short-A Boise, while pitcher Juan Paniagua and outfielder Kevin Encarnacion have been transferred from Kane County to Boise.

Skulina, the Cubs’ fourth-round draft choice in June, is the second player from the Cubs’ 2013 draft class to arrive, joining infielder Giuseppe Papaccio. Skulina, a 6-foot-5, 252-pound right-hander, appeared in eight games with Boise, two of which were starts. In 15 innings, Skulina allowed two earned runs and struck out 10 for the Hawks. Skulina attended Kent State University and this past season went 6-4 with a 3.36 ERA in 15 games.

Dore was acquired by the Cubs through a trade with San Diego earlier this year. The outfielder/infielder was an eighth round draft choice of the Padres in 2010 and played in nine games last season with Class-A Fort Wayne, Short-A Eugene and rookie-level Arizona.

Encarnacion began the season with Boise and joined the Cougars on June 28 to replace Bijan Rademacher, who was promoted to Class-A Advanced Daytona. Paniagua joined the Cougars on July 17 and made two starts.
