OF/1B Johan Limonta has returned to the York Revolution for the remainder of the regular season and playoffs, now that the Mexican League season has concluded. To make room for Limonta on the roster, reserve catcher Steve Sulcoski has been released.
Limonta’s Atlantic League contract was purchased by Piratas de Campeche on July 11. While Limonta had the opportunity to depart for a lucrative deal in Mexico earlier in the season, he declined, as it was his desire to help York win a first half division title before going anywhere. The Revs did just that, clinching with a day to go on July 5, a 2-0 win at Lancaster. Limonta stayed true to his word that he would return to York as well. His father continued to attend Revolution home games even after Limonta had joined his Mexican League club.
Before going to Mexico, Limonta batted .295 with seven home runs and 49 RBI in in 71 games this season. With Campeche, he kept up the good work, hitting .305 with six homers and 15 RBI in 27 games, helping the Piratas from under .500 when he arrived into a playoff spot.
