RHP Scott Gorgen signed
The Revolution has filled the open roster spot created by the departure of Chris Cody to the Brother Elephants in Taiwan. Right-handed reliever Scott Gorgen has signed with York, and as you can see from the stylish socks above, he’s played the majority of his career in the St. Louis Cardinals farm system.
Gorgen was drafted by St. Louis in the fourth round in 2008 out of UC-Irvine, ascending as high as Triple-A Memphis in 2012. Last season, he appeared in 14 games with Camden, making 11 starts. Gorgen excelled as a young prospect, posting a 2.32 ERA his first year at Single-A Batavia in 14 games (six starts), and followed that with a 2.92 ERA in 14 games (13 starts) for A-Advanced Palm Beach in 2009. In 2010, he posted a microscopic 1.26 ERA in 12 games (eight starts) with Double-A Springfield. Coming into the 2014 season, Gorgen had tallied a 26-25 career record with a solid 3.55 earned run average in 87 pro appearances (67 starts).
