Revolution sign RHP Luis Perdomo
Mark Mason has added some hard-throwing, right-handed depth to his bullpen with the addition of Luis Perdomo, who has pitched in 51 Major League games. Perdomo, 31, first signed with the Cleveland Indians in 2006, but made his MLB debut with the San Diego Padres in 2009, appearing in 35 games out of their bullpen. He also enjoyed big league call-ups in 2010 with San Diego (one game) and 15 games with the Minnesota Twins in 2012, his most recent Major League action.
Perdomo has posted a respectable 4.50 ERA in the Majors, striking out 63 batters in 78 innings pitched. As a minor leaguer, he’s the owner of a 3.90 career ERA, with 65 saves. In 466 minor league innings, he’s accumulated 430 strikeouts. Last season the Dominican Republic native was with Campeche of the Mexican League and is in his 10th professional season.
To make room for Perdomo on the roster, York has released RHP Eddie Medina and catcher Chris Marquez. Medina pitched just once for the Revolution, allowing three earned runs in 2.2 innings in a loss at Lancaster on July 17. He walked two and struck out two in the appearance. Marquez played just once for the Revs, in a July 19 loss at Lancaster, going 1-for-2 with a single, walk and strikeout in three plate appearances.
