The Charleston RiverDogs will have something for South Carolina and Clemson fans to cheer about this season.

Former Gamecocks outfielder DeAngelo Mack and former Tigers right-handed pitcher Graham Stoneburner will be assigned to the RiverDogs, the New York Yankees announced Thursday.

Mack, a native of West Columbia, had a successful debut season with the New York-Penn League champion Staten Island Yankees after being taken by the Yankees in the 13th round of the 2009 draft. The 23-year-old batted .306 in 66 games with seven home runs and 41 RBIs.

Stoneburner, from Richmond, Va., is the Yankees' 22nd best prospect, according to Baseball America. He battled through injuries during his career at Clemson, yet still managed a 7-4 record with a 3.52 ERA in 20 appearances in 2009. He was a 14th-round pick in the 2009 draft.

The RiverDogs are expected to announce their complete 25-player roster no later than Monday.

The RiverDogs open the season at home Thursday at 7 p.m. against the Lexington Legends.
