Paredes Signs with Tigers
Former York Revolution lefty Edward Paredes has signed with the Detroit Tigers for the 2017 season, joining his second MLB organization since his time in York. Paredes was outstanding at the Double-A level with the Arkansas Travelers in the Angels system last year, going 2-2 with a 2.27 ERA in 46 outings and being selected to the Texas League All-Star Game. The 30-year-old finally got an opportunity after three excellent seasons in York (2013-15), where he went 9-6 with a 3.00 ERA in 131 career appearances. Hat tip to former Revs marketing guru Paul Braverman, who pointed out that he had a teammate with the Travelers, Eduardo Paredes, also a lefty, who has been promoted to the Angels’ 40-man roster. They are, in fact, two different humans.
