Lefty Frank Gailey added to Revs bullpen
After the release of left-handed pitchers Shawn Teuful and Joe Harris following a loss at Lancaster June 20, the Revolution bullpen is complete again after the signing of RHP Santo Manzanillo and LHP Frank Gailey.
Gailey joins York in his ninth professional season, spent in the Phillies, Blue Jays and Athletics organizations. Gailey was also on the roster of Double-A Bowie with the Orioles this season, but did not appear in a game.
The 29-year-old southpaw and Philadelphia native was drafted by Toronto in 2007 and has appeared in 293 professional games, 124 of which have been at the Double-A level. In 477 career innings pitched, Gailey holds a very solid 2.92 ERA and good strikeout numbers, with 449 punchouts and just 120 walks. The last two seasons he’s appeared in 39 games (62 IP) and 40 games (52 IP) as a long reliever out of Double-A Midland’s bullpen in Oakland’s system.
Gailey pitched three seasons at Division II West Chester University in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference, before turning pro after his junior season to sign with Toronto. Three of his first four pro seasons Gailey turned in an ERA under 2.00 for Blue Jays Class A clubs; in 2008 with Auburn and Lansing, 2009 with Lansing and in 2011 at High-A Dunedin.
