Revolution add lefty reliever Dustin Pease
On Saturday the Revolution signed left-hander Dustin Pease to their bullpen, and it will be his second tour of duty in York. After appearing in 54 games with Wichita in 2010 and posting a 2.45 ERA with 64 strikeouts and a 6-1 record, Pease joined York upon the conclusion of the American Association season and appeared in eight regular season games with the Revs. He was with the club as they captured the 2010 Atlantic League Championship.
The Baltimore native pitched collegiately not far from the Charm City or York, at Division I Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Maryland from 2004-2007. He was solid the last two seasons in the San Diego Padres organization with a 3.18 ERA in 55 games at A-Advanced Lake Elsinore in the California League in 2011, and a 3.94 in 52 games at Double-A San Antonio in the Texas League last season. Pease continued to post impressive strikeout totals, fanning 66 in 2011 and 56 in 2012.
Due to Atlantic League rules allowing 27 active players to be carried on rosters until June 1, no players were released by York with the addition of Pease. The Revolution roster will stay at 26 for the time being.
