Paredes Recalled by Dodgers
Great news coming across the wire yesterday as former Revs lefty Edward Paredes has been recalled by the Dodgers and is heading to the big leagues for the second time this season. Paredes worked two-thirds of an inning (scoreless) at Arizona on May 3, and entered last night’s 8-7 Dodgers victory in Pittsburgh in the sixth inning with a 4-2 lead and a runner at second, striking out Corey Dickerson, his only batter faced, on a 2-2 pitch to earn a “hold”.
Paredes was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City where he was 2-2 with a 2.00 ERA in 18 outings, having allowed just 15 hits while striking out 24 batters in 18.0 innings on the season.
That success is no surprise to Revs fans, as Paredes still ranks 7th in franchise history in ERA (3.00, min. 101.0 IP), 5th in relief appearances (131), sixth in overall appearances, and 6th in relief wins (9), pitching for York from 2013-15 where he was one of the Atlantic League’s top relievers.
Paredes made his Major League debut last July, going 1-0 with a 3.24 ERA in 10 outings, walking none and striking out 11 in 8.1 innings. He earned the win in his Major League debut, an incredible story that we profiled here.
