RHP Santo Manzanillo signed
After right-hander Brad Bergesen was forced to leave the game June 18 at home against SOMD mid-at-bat with what appeared to be a serious injury to his pitching arm, he’s been replaced in the Revolution bullpen.
Santo Manzanillo is now under contract, who spent the first seven seasons of his career in the Milwaukee Brewers organization, and last season with the Joliet Slammers in the Frontier League.
Manzanillo’s best season as a pro came in 2011 split between High-A Brevard County and Double-A Huntsville, where in 48 games he posted a 1.75 ERA in 61.2 innings, notching 17 saves. That season Manzanillo struck out 62, walking only 26. He was signed by the Brewers as an international free agent and turned pro that season.
