The Trail native and former Trail Jay will play first base for B.C. as it opens against host Trois Rivieres Thursday night.

Strachan played last season for the Thompson River University Wolfpack and for the Kamloops Sun Devils of the Pacific International League this summer with fellow Trail products Pat Brown and Ryan Friedrich.

B.C. takes on Manitoba Friday, and will play two games against Ontario and New Brunswick Saturday before the playoff round.
