(EAST LAKE, Ohio) The hard work is paying off for Grant Fink.  

The former Missouri Western and Mustangs third baseman has been promoted the the opening day roster of the Lake County Captains, the Cleveland Indians' Class A affiliate.

Fink was selected in the 23rd round of last summer's Major League Baseball Draft and batted .263 through 46 games in the Arizona League. He was called up to Mahoning Valley of the New York Penn League for the last five games of their season. He registered eight hits and three RBI, including a home run in that stretch. 

"On my way to compete for the @LCCaptains. Feeling blessed for the opportunities God has thrown by way," Fink tweeted on Sunday. 

Lake County begins their season on Friday against Lansing.
