Revolution pick up reliever Paredes
While adding at least one position player is still in the works, the Revs roster is back to 25 active players after the signing of LHP Edward Paredes. Paredes began this season at Double-A Akron in the Cleveland Indians system, and spent the first five seasons of his pro career in the Seattle Mariners organization, where he was a teammate of fellow York reliever Stephen Penney, and former Revs Ryan Feierabend and Brandon Haveman.
The Dominican Republic native comes to York with 183 career appearances, and 44 career starts in the Class A levels with Seattle between 2007 and 2009. He’s been exclusively a reliever since then. Paredes owns seven career saves, and ascended as high as Triple-A Tacoma with the Mariners in 2010 and 2011.
