Good day Revs fans,
Thought it’d be a good time to do our first winter ball update and check in on how our guys are faring in the Caribbean where, let’s face it, we’d probably all like to be right about now.
First, some exciting news for a member of last year’s pitching staff (more…)
(October 19, 2018, York, Pa.) — Three Revolution leaders earned post-season honors from the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, the team announced today.
Outfielder Melky Mesa was named to the league’s Post-Season All-Star Team. Second baseman Alexi Casilla and Outfielder Jared Mitchell were named to the Red, White, and Blue All-Defensive Team, which commemorates the red and blue stitched Rawlings baseball that was adopted as the league’s official baseball in 2015.

The York Revolution have been busy over the last few weeks fine-tuning their roster for the stretch run, filling holes and adding depth in multiple areas with five recent additions.
York signed right-handed pitcher Troy Terzi on August 16 to help fill out the back-end of the starting rotation. Terzi is 1-0 with 16 strikeouts and only four walks in 18.2 innings of work in four starts. He earned his first professional win on August 26 when he worked 6.0 innings against Southern Maryland and logged three scoreless innings in his season debut on August 16 against New Britain. Terzi, 24, joined the Revs after two standout years at Division III Keystone College in Pennsylvania.
With a thinning bullpen, the Revs went out and signed left-handed pitcher Dustin Richardson a few days later. The former big-leaguer was handed the closer’s role right away and has converted all four of his save opportunities since joining the team. He’s posted a 3.55 ERA with 22 strikeouts and only four walks in 12.2 innings in 10 appearances.
Richardson has not allowed a run in his last seven innings, spanning six outings, with 12 strikeouts in that span. He worked 2.2 perfect innings with five strikeouts in his season debut on August 22. Richardson reached the Major Leagues with the Boston Red Sox in 2009 and 2010, owning a 3.31 ERA over 16.1 innings in a combined 29 appearances over the two seasons. The 6’6” southpaw started the 2017 season with Sugar Land before finishing with Long Island.
In immediate need for infield depth at the end of August, the Revs signed Steven Figueroa, who was with the New Hampshire Wild in the Empire League. Figueroa, 23, went 3-for-3 with the game-winning RBI double and a run in his season debut on August 24 and is 9-for-18 (.500 BA) with four multi-hit games, two RBIs and four runs scored in five games with the Revs.
The Revs stayed aggressive and used their first September out-of-league acquisition to bring in right-handed pitcher Jonathan de Marte, who spent each of the last two seasons with the Normal Cornbelters of the Frontier League. de Marte went 3-4 with a 2.87 ERA and seven saves in 44 relief appearances with Normal in 2018. He racked up 58 strikeouts in 53.1 innings with only 42 hits and 18 walks allowed. de Marte, 25, has logged two scoreless innings with two strikeouts since joining the Revs on September 4.
The Revs weren’t done adding to their bullpen though. The club used its second out-of-league acquisition on left-handed pitcher Austin Wright from the Gary SouthShore Rail Cats of the American Association on Tuesday, August 4. Wright was 1-1 with a 3.66 ERA in four games (two starts) and had 22 strikeouts in 19.1 innings with Gary.

The Seattle Mariners selected the contract of former York Revolution left-handed pitcher Ross Detwiler from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday, the team announced.
Detwiler made his season debut for the Mariners last night, tossing 6.0 innings in relief against the Astros in Seattle. He gave up three runs and struck out two batters in his first Major League outing since Sept. 28, 2016.
“We’re very happy for Ross. I felt he was the best pitcher in the league at the time he was signed. What happened to him this season is exactly what our league is all about,” said Revs manager Mark Mason. “We wish him continued success and look forward to following his career moving forward.”
Detwiler becomes the 10th former Rev and eighth pitcher to reach the Major Leagues after spending time in York. He is the second former Rev to reach the Majors this season joining Edward Paredes, who made 15 relief appearances for the Dodgers. Joining more elite company, Detwiler is the fourth player to go from the Revs to the Majors in the same season; he joins outfielder Tike Redman (Orioles-2007), right-handed pitcher Shawn Hill (Blue Jays-2012) and right-handed pitcher Julio DePaula (Orioles-2014) in that group.
Detwiler, 32, began the 2018 season with the Revs, going 3-1 with a 2.70 ERA and 32 strikeouts in 30.0 innings over six starts. His best start with the Revs was his last, when he racked up a Revs-season-high 11 strikeouts with no walks over 7.1 strong innings and earned the win against the Road Warriors on May 26.
The Mariners purchased his contract on May 31 and assigned him to Triple-A, where he logged 71.2 innings over 14 appearances (11 starts) before his big-league promotion on Tuesday.
The southpaw’s best start at Triple-A came on June 25 against Las Vegas when he worked 7.1 innings and allowed only one run on two hits with nine strikeouts and just two walks, and earned the win. He worked at least 6.0 innings in seven of his 11 starts and had seven quality starts, which included two stints with three straight quality starts.
The Mariners are Detwiler’s sixth Major League team. He spent parts of seven seasons with the Nationals from 2007-2014 before pitching in the Majors with the Rangers and Braves in 2015, and the Indians and Athletics in 2016. Detwiler had 23 wins and 352 strikeouts in 189 appearances (83 starts) over nine Major League seasons prior to his Tuesday call-up.
