LHP Logan Williamson signed
With Corey Thurman in Michigan tending to his family with his father ill, and Matt Neil with some elbow soreness after tossing a complete game in a 12-1 victory at Somerset on June 3, it forced Alain Quijano, Chris Cody and Jorge Martinez to all come back on three-days rest during the four game series against Sugar Land June 6-9, with Beau Vaughan making a spot start out of the bullpen in that series.
With the Revolution in need of a starter, they’ve signed lefty Logan Williamson, who will make his Revs debut Thursday at Camden. Manager Mark Mason sounded optimistic that Neil wouldn’t miss multiple starts, and if so, would not be on the shelf long, or long enough to hit the disabled list. Thurman may be back as early as the weekend when the team returns home, but his absence is indefinite.
Williamson has been in the Atlantic League before, putting up solid numbers with Southern Maryland last season; a 3.66 ERA in 31 appearances and 12 starts in 76 innings. This season, he has already made two stops in Texas, for San Angelo of the United League and Amarillo of the American Association. He was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in 2004 and has also played in the Mexican League.
