In 2015, Conway went 2-2 with three saves and a 2.92 ERA in 34 relief outings with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (Cubs High-A affiliate). Conway began his pro career in 2014, winning the Northwest League Championship with the Boise Hawks (Class-A Short-Season). Conway finished the season 0-1 with a 1.96 ERA in 13 starts for the Hawks.
