Josh Judy promoted by Angels to Triple-A
York Dispatch Revolution beat reporter John Walk tweeted this out earlier; former Revs reliever pitcher Josh Judy has been moved by the L.A. Angels to the Triple-A Salt Lake Bees. He had been pitching with the Double-A Arkansas Travelers since his contract was purchased by the Angels from York on May 2. Judy pitched in just four games for the Revolution, allowing three hits and a run in four innings, with five strikeouts and a walk.
With Arkansas, he posted a 3.60 ERA in 14 appearances and 15 innings, striking out 14 and walking four. Opponents hit .232 off Judy, and he converted six saves. Judy made 12 appearances in the Majors for Cleveland in 2011, and our assumption was correct that as soon as a Triple-A spot opened the Angels would move him up. In his first two games with Salt Lake, he hasn’t allowed a run in 3.1 innings over two appearances.
Should Judy earn a promotion to the Majors, he’d be the fifth former Revolution player to accomplish such a feat.
