The York Revolution have made a big addition to their bullpen, signing Major League veteran lefty Josh Smoker. The 30-year-old is active and could make his debut this weekend during the Revs’ series in High Point. (more…)
The Revs released RHP Corey Walter & LHP Ian Thomas prior to Sunday’s game. Walter is heading home to finish school this fall, and Thomas was coming off a shoulder injury that wiped out his last two seasons, and struggled to get built up as a starter. The Revs have signed a pair of young RHPs who will make their debuts on this road trip in Ricky Schafer and Joe Jones.
Schafer is a 26-year-old from Mission Viejo, CA who began his pro career in the Pacific Association before pitching in the Can-Am League last season. He has also established himself as one of the top starters in the Empire League the last two years, going a combined 13-2 with an ERA in the low 2.00s. Schafer will make his debut on Thursday night at Somerset.
Jones is a 6’5 righty from Cookeville, TN who has seen time in the American Association, Pacific Association, and Frontier League. He’ll make his Atlantic League debut Friday night at New Britain.
Here are tonight’s game notes for the opener at Somerset, including lots of nuggets from Sunday’s 19-1 thrashing of the Bees: 7-30-19 at SOM
The Revs have added RHP Julio Eusebio to the bullpen in advance of tonight’s game at New Britain. Eusebio began the season in the Mexican League and spent four seasons in the Pirates system putting up terrific numbers from 2014-17 before some time in the American Association last year. More on Eusebio and the rest of the red-hot Revs in tonight’s game notes: 7-19-19 at NB
The York Revolution made a pair of roster moves today, releasing RHP Pat Young while adding OF Dario Pizzano who had played in 13 games for Somerset. A Boston native, Pizzano advanced to Triple-A with the Seattle Mariners who drafted him out of Columbia University, and also spent time at Double-A with the New York Mets earlier this season. More on Pizzano in tonight’s game notes: 7-17-19 at SOM
Yup. All of that, and probably more. It’s been a busy couple of days news-wise for the Revs. To sum it all up, a franchise record eight Revs have been selected to the Atlantic League All-Star Game this Wednesday night at PeoplesBank Park. The full roster can be found here. Yesterday also brought the announcement that J.P. Sportman was named Atlantic League Player of the Month; he would have been a ninth Revs All-Star, but had to be placed on the Disabled List after his 27-game hitting streak was ended with a hit by pitch on Tuesday, just 4 shy of the league record. Sportman is expect to miss 3-4 weeks. Melky Mesa has also gone on the DL, retroactive to June 24 (also due to a hit by pitch) and should return shortly after the All-Star Break. In the meantime, the Revs have added former Yankees and Orioles lefty Cesar Cabral and have added speedy outfielder DJ Jenkins. More can be found on those two in today’s game notes as the Revs aim for a record 9th straight win tonight in Lancaster: 7-6-19 at LAN
The Revs have signed power-hitting corner infielder Carlos Franco, a Triple-A All-Star in the Atlanta Braves system last year. He will make his debut for the Revs tonight vs. High Point. York has also released pitchers Josh Glick, Jeffrey Rosa, and Jarret Martin along with infielder Nate Coronado. Read the full bio on Franco as well as all of the other notes for tonight’s matchup in tonight’s official game notes: 6-12-19 vs HP
The Revs have signed former San Diego State Aztec Phil Walby who has spent his career in the Yankees, Nationals, and Blue Jays farm systems. Walby has been a reliever throughout his career, but will get the start in game one of tonight’s doubleheader vs. High Point. Here are the game notes with tons of historical info from last night’s record-setting victory: 6-11-19 vs HP
A couple of roster moves today as RHP Matthew Grimes had his contract purchased by the Chinese Professional Baseball League (Taiwan) which means Ian Thomas will make tonight’s start, and the Revs have signed infielder Alvaro Rondon. The 28-year-old Rondon began this season with Sugar Land, where he batted .281 last season with 38 stolen bases (#3 in the league) and a league-leading 13 sac bunts. He was also the Skeeters’ Community Player of the Year last season. He had a 60-steal season in the American Association in 2017 and reached Triple-A in the Diamondbacks farm system. Primarily a middle infielder throughout his career, the switch-hitting Rondon is leading off and playing shortstop tonight as the Revs host the High Point Rockers. More on Rondon in tonight’s game notes: 6-10-19 vs HP
The Revs look to even things tonight in North Carolina and Mitch Atkins makes the start roughly 30 miles from where he grew up. All of that plus some notes on infielder Angelys Nina who was acquired from Southern Maryland and made his debut last night here in tonight’s game notes: 6-4-19 at HP
The Revs have added RHP Duke von Schamann who will start Sunday’s game vs. Lancaster. von Schamann was acquired in a trade from Gary SouthShore of the American Association and has been added to the active roster. We’ll have more on the righty in Sunday’s game notes, but the 6’5 Tulsa, OK native was a 15th round pick of the Dodgers in 2012 out of Texas Tech and has pitched in both the Dodgers and Indians farm systems, reaching Triple-A. He is 45-38 with a 4.28 ERA in his seven-year pro career, mostly all as a starter, and has averaged just 2.0 walks per 9 innings. The 27-year-old was 4-1 with a 2.70 ERA in 8 starts for Joliet of the Frontier League last season. Now for tonight’s opener against the Barnstormers, here are the game notes: 5-23-19 vs SMD
